    Hey all, I have an 06 SR5 Tacoma 6spd, it has around 120k. The last couple of months the battery light would flash along with my headlights when I had them on obviously, and my aftermarket radio would shut off. I got my alternator tested and they said it was fine, but they said the battery was lacking in cranking amps, but it would be fine for a little longer. So I waited and it didn't do it for about a month and now its doing it again. I really don't think it is the battery, but I could be wrong. and I have had the radio in for about 3 years so I doubt its anything involving that. Any help or suggestions on things to check would be greatly appreciated.

    There's a thread on here of people saying when their batteries need replacing, if you are on your original battery at 120k it probably needs changing.

    I believe it is the second one.
