I there guys I picked silv up 2 days ago and on the way back from work the battery light come on. And kept dimming and flickering everything still worked like the wipers etc. Any ideas?

Also it used to have a defi fitted and he put the std guage in and it shows -7 all the time it does the swoop at start up so there's power to it. Why is this?

the standard solenoid not connected under the bonnet for the boost gauge??? or the pipe has a split? common problem!


replace the battery?? the voltage will still be there whilst you're driving cause the altenator will be producing power. or it could be the other way round, the altenator isn't producing the power so the light's comin' on.

Test the battery with a volt meter before any replacement. engine off, should be about 12.5v, running, about 13.5-14.5v

It could be anything from poor connections, dying altenator, partial short circuit.

I assume the battery light is dimming as the revs go up, so I'd guess an altenator fault.
