Hello

1st check that the alternator is secure to the engine as this provides the ground for the charging circuit and make sure that the engine / gearbox earth strap is secure and the contacts are clean and bright.

if thats OK then check that the small wire that runs from the back of the alternator is in good condition and the connection is clean and bright

as its this that switches the alternator over to charge

Hello

its worth checking the main power fuses in the underbonnet fuse box too but these shouldn't effect the charging aspect
