Good Day,

It could also be caused by a faulty or corroded battery cable, they are cheap to replace and I would start with that if I were you.

Alt was bad.

At autozone you can also check the power regulator.

Someone is missing something. Suggest alternator may be putting out voltage but not amperage or vice versa.

My 1994 nissan, the alt/oil light, battery light keep flickering.

It could possibility be bad or loose connection on the alternator or battery wiring, or a loose alternator belt. All those lights come on when the battery isn't getting a charge, so the alternator is where I'd start looking.

Battery light comes on intermittantly while driving I had the battery tested and alternator everything was fine???Is it safe??

You have an intermitt issue. Test battery voltage when light is on. More than likely alternator (also check the belt that drives it) or poor battery connection (must be clean and tight).

BMW 323i no power in the car at all, not the battery, not the alt

I think the earth lead from the battery to the body may have come loose or come off. Its worth a quick look. good luck
