Re: [DML] Battery Light, RPM movement




I've had a similar problem with mine as well.  Try this, start the
engine and open the engine cover.  While reving the engine wiggle the
wire loom that goes to the alternator.  See if you can reproduce the
problem.  If so likely that you simply have a loose connection or
ground some where in the loom.  From there its just a troubleshooting
task to locate exactly where.  I've found a short somewhere going to
my alt that causes the Battery light to come on, it would only do it
at certain RPMs and then later when I hit bumps which clued me on to
it being a loose wire.  I haven't located it becase everything is
securely attached to the alt, so I think its in the loom.  For the
time being I've moved the loom and the problem has gone away!  :) 
Can't wait until it comes back!
