hi all,
having a bit of an intermittent problem.
every so often my battery light will flash up for a second when im driving then dissapear again. It only ever does this a maximum of once each day, i can go for a few weeks sometimes with no probs.
Ive noticed it happens at any rev range.

...not wanting to be Captain Obvious, but have you checked the battery?

not had it load tested if thats what you mean as i havent had any problems with starting etc even through the winter. I have checked the terminals though, both clean and tight.

Could be a dodgy earth on the alternator. Check see if theres any corrosion on the connector that could be causing a intermittent problem.
