I have a relatively bizarre scenario with my Chevrolet Captiva.
The battery light occasionally will stay on after starting the vehicle, now this isn’t as simple as it sounds because I have tested the battery and that’s fine 12.7v and CCA is fine. Also I have tested the alternator and that’s putting out decent voltage with and without accessories on (13.5v-14.1v)

the strange part is that it will not come on when already driving or during a journey, the issue only happens when I for example go for a drive and then stop and turn vehicle off, when I then turn the ignition on the battery light will extinguish but then a second or two later flick back On and stay on.if I then start the car it will have the battery light on for the whole of that journey, if I however turn the key off and turn the ignition back on it normally takes the battery light off

any suggestions?? I don’t think it’s the alternator or the battery. And if it was a loose connection why wouldn’t the light occasionally come on when driving?

thanks in advance
