Flashing Battery Icon on Dash

Hi,

New here.

2000 V6 Convert. 5 spd 60K. All stock.

Just started:

When in 1st or 2nd, and I accelerate, to about 3K rpm, the Battery Icon on the dash panel begins to flicker and then stays on momentarily. As soon as I let-off, it goes out. Does not do it at high speed in 3-4 or 5. The dash gauge says it's charging...and battery is in good shape with full charge.

Searched the forum and checked the Users Man...no luck...

Any ideas?

TIA,

Mick

Alternator, probably belt slipping.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

My friends F-150 with a 4.2 V6 does the same thing but it does it later in the RPM range. He uses it as a shift light! :laughlitt
