5 posts in this topic

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 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.
