QI’ve got a 1993 Mini Sprite that runs very well, barring the red alternator warning light, which comes on now and again at idle, albeit not very brightly. The car gets parked up for weeks on end and always holds charge, so I doubt it’s a charging issue. Any suggestions to what it might be? Adam Wood
AIf everything is hooked up and properly connected, this would only happen when the idle is speed is too low, so not providing enough drive to the alternator to charge. Most times this happens just after starting the car from cold, so immediately after a big demand on the battery, and the alternator is re-charging at that point. The resistance caused within the alternator drags the idle speed down. If that is not the case, then it may well be a terminal not properly connected, making intermittent non or poor contact with its joining connection. Ultimately the best course of action would be to have the battery condition and charging system checked out.

Always check out warning lights.
