battery indicator issue

I have a 97 F 250 with a 7.3. I am getting the battery indicator light in the dashboard display panel. My first thought is that I have an alternator problem but notice that the light comes on when I let off the throttle and sometimes at idle. Any thoughts?

Re: battery indicator issue

have the alternator tested for output at idle when the light is on. also check the plug going into the alternator. it may just be loose.

I had the alternator tested, it was bad. Replaced.

Re: battery indicator issue

Thanks for your advice. I'll watch for that if I can remember 10 years from now when it happens again.
