have put this in electrical section but hope its OK to post here as well as it might get more views......
recently came accross this problem, after a long run came to start the van again and ignition light and oil light stayed on, messed with some of the wires around the alternator restarted and all seemed fine. fast forward few days and driving the van and ignition light glows around half power and oil light starts flashing. Checked oil and wiring again but didnt stop it, carried onto work with fingers crossed and noticed a rattle from the engine! Luckily it was just the alternator had somehow lost its main fixing bolt and was only held on by the belt itself and the tensioner bolt. figured that was why ignition light glowing slightly. Added new bolt and retensioned belt and figured that would sort if but no when I start the van oil light flashing and ign light just glows slightly with engine running. Have checked all/most electrical connections and with test meter looks like alternator is chrging, so any ideas anyone? Oh its a T4 1.9TD
