i took the car on a long drive the other day down to university of illinois to see my sister and when i went to get in the car and start it the car barely started and the volt meter was way down. i drove around campus for a few minutes to see if it would go back up and it eventually did....

once on the highway it dropped again and stayed like that for a while and then went back up to normal. now its been doing that ever since the trip....any ideas what it could be?

Are the battery cables clean and tight? How old is the battery? Sounds like it's gotten the first taste of cold weather and doesn't like it.

possible dieing alternator maybe. take a hand held volt meter and check to see how much the alternator is putting out.
