Something I've heard lots of times is a new alternator failing. Have it checked. then have the battery checked.

There i a small factory wire at the back of the alternator that sends a signal to the cluster any aftermarket alternator will trip this sensor randomly if you are ever unsure check the battery with a multi meter turn the meter to dc voltage while the car is running at idle touch the black wire from the multimeter on negative terminal red wire on positive it shoul read around 14v maybe a little more if so your alternator is good
