I see the battery light coming ON when Im idling at a traffic signal.
It happens only when I drive back home at night and doesnt happen in the morning.
I noticed that if I switch off the headlight when I am idling at the signal and use them only when the car is running, the battery light does NOT come on.
I have also tried using the radio for my entire ride to office and it doesnt cause the problem.
Both the alternator and the belt are just 1 year old.
The battery is 5 months old.
Could it be a short in the headlight circuitry or is it a problem with the battery?
Could you please suggest what could be the problem and how do I track the problem? Also, can I fix the problem, if so how can I do it?
have the same problem?
