It is part of the alternator, as this vehicle has a computer controlled charging system that part should be checked first, I have seen a few of these need a new ECM just due to they lost the programming for the alternator activation. Sorry but a dealer is the best place to have this check performed.

Took it to the dealer and they did all test and couldnt find anything wrong with it. The light still turning off and on. Now the battery is hesitating to turn on.

Well then they missed something cause now it sounds like the battery is almost dead, and if this happens too may times it will also ruin a good battery.

I took it to where i bought the alternator and they also did a system check, and the same thing. Everything came out good, charging system and starter. It did say battery was low, they told me that maybe the connectors to the alternator maybe loose

Was the battery low due to it intermittent charging or cause the battery is going bad? Did they do a load test on the battery?

They did to a load test, before load it was 13.99v and with load it was 13.87. They didnt tell me why the battery was low

No that's not right, were they using one of those new digital meters? If so it sounds wonkey, see if you can find someplace that uses the good old carbon pile unit.

Yeah it was advance auto. Carbon pile unit?

Yep, old but they work great and can really load test a battery, something these new units just don't do.
