Default Shuttering 2005 Base Model

So I spent this weekend putting a new bumper with fog lights onto my PT. My car was not wired for fog lights from the factory so tomorrow I plan to stop by a dealership near my college and ask for parts.



Before I do this though, I have a question about "shuttering" that occurs when I'm at a dead stop with the AC on. It happens in any position that I have the fan speed knob set to. If the fan speed knob is in the off position it won't shutter. So I am wondering if my alternator needs to be replaced/upgraded or its something else. I dont want to spend the money on the wiring harness for the fog lights if my car can't handle the voltage.

My battery Info.



Its a 2005 Base Model.
Any suggestion will be helpful.

Thank
-Matt

Do you mean "shuddering"? Or Stuttering?

I dont hear any squeaking coming from it. It only Shudders when I'm stopped. Last time I changed the battery because it completely died and it shuddered a couple weeks before the replacement. I didn't have the problem again until now. The battery is like 4 months old.
