Depends on which issue you are referring to.


the MOST COMMON high-rpm light is from floating brushes on the alternator, a sign of an aging alternator.

Solving involves either rebuilding the brushes (technically do-able, but not worth it to me...) or replacing the alternator.

There is another issue, which is fixed by GoldenTour's wire fix...

Is there a third issue that is actually a verified "third" issue?




I was going to say there is the wire fix which in more cases that i've read on CEG fixed the flicking battery light at high RPM, which I myself have every now and then which leads me to believe that the wire fix is the solution. I've read on CEG ppl replace everything and the problem still haunts them and eventually the wire fix fixed the problem. It's a CHEAP fix that's for sure and couldn't hurt!
