The Volts light is lit up on my dashboard. The car starts fine and the engine sounds fine while it is running. This light pops on, but sometimes will go back out. I just put in a new battery today and then drove to Autozone to have the alternator checked. The alternator checked out fine.
I cannot find any kind of pattern as to when the light will come on. Sometimes it will be on for a few minutes, sometimes only for a few seconds. It doesn't seem to matter if the engine is revved or if the car is idling either.
Any help or even just suggestions on what else to check would be greatly appreciated.
