Question about 2003 Ford Escape
This can be poor grounding of the engine and alternator and battery as there is a potential drop. It can also be due to a mismatch with high load when the charging voltage is not balanced.
So since the alternator was replaced the rectifier/regulator also can have a small leak which is producing the soft light which goes off when the headlight is swithced off. A test may not show this because the charge would be seen but the fault is a tiny ac leak into the system due to the weak regulator. It might fail in the long run or casue static in radio.
