Default 2001 PT cruiser battery light issue


I was driving home one night and the battery light came on, and some of the dash lights were flickering. The radio sound was going in and out, but I was not losing charge. I made it home, 15 mins away, and I shut down the car and turned it back on with no issues. This issue has randomly happened this week. I have checked the battery and it is 12.5v and it is charging at 14.5v. I have not checked the belt, I am afraid that it is a voltage reg problem.

Thank you for any input

Check the harness that sits above the passenger side front axle.
The clip brakes letting the harness rest on the axle causing wires to fray or brake.
