I had the same problem...fortunately, it happened to me under warranty and
it DID reproduce itself the morning I took it to the dealer about 2 years
ago. They also told me the "specs for output are fine" for the alternator
and voltage regulator, but they replaced the alternator anyway, under
warranty. Cured the problem. Others have cured the problem by just
replacing the voltage regulator.
