You my need to have the alternator looked at again to see if it's charging you also have to look at the fuse for the alternator it may be blown. Also check the check the plug that goes to the back of the alternator make sure it is in all the way.

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).
