Q: Battery Light intermittantly comes on on 2005 Jaguar X-Type

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
2005 X-Type.
The battery light came on intermittantly. When the light was "on" the alternator was not charging. If I turned the car off and removed the key...when I restarted the car the light was off and the alternator was working. I drove like this for about a month til I could aford a new alternator and battery.
After replacing these the light stayed off for 2 weeks but came on again today. I switched the car off and removed the key. After the restart the light stayed off. Any ideas what I should look at next?

I would make sure all your grounds are clean and tight. Did you have the alternator checked prior to replacing it?
similar problem on my 2003 model. been there for over three years. sometimes happens once in three months. had my charging system checked 3 times when in jaguar dealer for a service. nothing found wrong. so i just switch off like you and carry on.
