What causes the battery light to come on? I've had the battery and alternator tested, both are good. I've cleaned the terminnals, checked all fuses. Please help.

Have you a alternator charge rate reading? Let me know what this is, use a volt meter and probe the main wire at the alternator and earth the neg cable to ground, bring up the revs and read the voltage get idle & 1500 RPM's.
