    Default battery charge light

    just put on a cam belt on me 1.9 cdti, i fired up the motor without the alternator belt fitted to see how she sounded when i noticed that the charge light went out with the engine runing. how can this be with no alternator belt on???????

    it only comes on when the battery is going flat, run it for an hour with the lights, radio, rear window heater and a few other things going and it willl soon come on if its not getting a charge

    so this means it is not a charge light at all, it is a battery condition light.

    Nope, if it was a battery condition light, then why does it illuminate before cranking the engine at ignition position II

    Carrying out diagnostic checks on ignition start up, on those electronic aids, which are monitored by sensors. All modern cars do this.....and more. Quite normal. If those lights stay on and don't go off when you start the engine, a problem has been 'sensed', and requires investigation.

    yes agreed so why whith no alternator belt on does the light go out when you start the car, if the light came on that would point to a problem but the light goes out which normally points to a normal working system.
    confussed???
