2005 Mustang GT-electrical issue, whining from dash

So the car's finally fixed, was a bad speed sensor, runs like a champ again.
Only now this morning I leave for class, everything's fine, put the top down etc.
Get to class 10-15 minutes later, go to put the top up and roll the windows up annnd this:
Radio turns off
There's a whining coming from the dash and everything is moving ultra slow
Give it some gas and things pick up and the whining dies down, let up and the whining comes back slightly even when I'm not doing anything, same thing happened for the windows.

I have NO idea what this is. I hope I'm not gonna get stranded.

the whining sounds like its from your speakers. (possibly) . get close to your speakers and listen to them and see if thats the area the sound is coming from. Also does the sound only happen when the car is running or when the ignition is on or what? that can help narrow it down.

No it wasn't the speakers, whining came from dead center on the dash
my alternator is screwed.
Car was dead when I went back out, got a jump, didn't last for 5 minutes.
I am so sick of dealing with this car.
Anyone know the best route to take on rebuilding an alternator with stronger diodes, or just getting a heavier duty one?
