I have a little problem with keeping my GTI running. It runs out of juice and dies. I jump start it and it will run for a minute then die again. It cant be push started because it has no power. Does this sound like a bad battery or a bad alternator. When it i about to die and i push on the brakes the brake lights take power and everything dims. I think this is a sign of a bad alternator, but I want to be positive. thanks.

Well from the way you described it it deffinatly sounds like it could be a problem with your charging system take it to your local shop and have them test it.
