Battery light

Okay guys, quick question. When I punch it and rev out to around 5-5500k rpms, the battery light blinks... What could be causing this?

Alternator probably going bad, maybe a bad connection on the terminal.

I got my alternator tested and it's fine. I mean it would have to be a connection problem somewhere I guess.

I would clean up battery terminals, replace connectors if needed, and make sure the battery tie-down is doing its job. That's weird though.

have you figured out what it is... I know its already been said but it is your alternator.. the battery light will only come on from your alternator. yeah you may have had it tested but it could just be intermitted ... the brushes are prob starting to wear out...

hhhaha ok yah could be a bad connection to the alternator... a dead battery wont even give you the battery light, the light is ran threw the alternator so its the only thing that's going to set it off.. maybe make sure the connection is secure but other then...
