is the light coming on / off dependant on the amount of revs you give? I found with mine when I revved high the light went out - this turned out to be the brushes inside the alternator, very simple and cheap to fix. Dont let a mechanic tell you they need to replace the whole alternator until they've ruled out the brushes. You could do it yourself its just two screws to remove the brushes then check they are not below the minimum length, very simple - get yourself a haynes manual. GG.
