Battery Light

My battery light has been coming on and going off. I went to the auto parts store to test the battery and alternator but they said everything is fine. Wonder what it could be.

My 2002 is doing the exact same thing. My battery is about a year old and I just replaced alternator. Mine is still doing it. Makes lights go a little dim and then comes back to normal. Very intermittent. Doesn't do it all the time. This seems like an alternator problem, so not sure if the new one I got is a bad one but my meter is reading like it's ok. So not sure. I think is a common mustang issue with these years.

This might be a wiring issue. I'd start looking at the wiring coming from fide box in the engine bay looking for frayed wires. Also check ground wires

Thanks, they told me to check the cables for corrosion but I never did
