Took the drivers side alternator to get rebuilt and they tested it prior to the rebuild and told me it was good. I’m gonna put it back on tonight. I had both batteries tested, one was bad and I replaced it. Once I’ll put the other battery on a charger to see if that works.I hate to assume. But, are you by chance talking about a CUCV?
If so, how did you check the alternator?
Did you load test the batteries and are they fully charged?
If charging the one battery doesn’t work I think I’ll swap with the Gen 2 to see if the Gen2 light stays on.I had the same problem with an alternator some years back. The light was always on but other than that it worked normally. The problem was in the alternator itself as it did the same thing in multiple trucks.
So I reinstalled the alt. And charged the batteries. The light is very dim now in idle, gets a little brighter in idle with the lights on, and lights up bright as I’m driving.That’s a good way to check it as long as it’s the original style isolated ground alternator.
