[DML] Re: the alternator

There are soooooo many things that could cause the light to come on at 
idle, in gear, that it is too much to take a shot. It could be as 
straight forward as your idle is too low - but that is a whole set of 
other issues.

We need much more info. Like what is the rpm in gear and at idle? What 
are the volts - at idle and driving? Anything else noticeable? Has the 
electrical system resistance been checked?
