Hi I have a gq patrol 3l petrol.
My alternator does not charge until I rev the engine to 3000rpm. Then it starts charging. The battery light does not illuminate during any time. When I turn my keys off the reds stay on with power as it would with the keys on. There is a relay in the driver's kick panel that I can wiggle that turns them off. Now if I remove the battery charging light from the dash and turn the key off the reds turn off straight away without needing to wiggle the relay. Strange. The battery charhe light works when tested. I did recently fix a lose ignition barrel. The wires at the back don't plug in properly to the barrel housing. So they are taped up in the barrel. Mihhg be fault barrel?

Try disconnecting the small plug at the alternator and see if the warning light comes on when the ignition is turned on.
