mk2tastic posted a topic in ICE, Electrical and LightingMy MK2 polo Fox(1043) with the standard Dashboard(no rev counter/clock and trip) has an intermittent fault with the Alternator warning light not illuminating when the ignition is switched on. Giving the top of the dash a thump brings it back on, so that tells me it’s not an alternator fault. is this a common fault and is it fixable? I’m good with a soldering iron if it’s likely to be dry joints.The worry is that without the warning light lit to start with the battery won’t charge, as I believe it needs the lamp lit to ‘excite’ the alternator into action.
