Maybe the alternator has a problem. Here's the diagram for it. Fig. 11 | Repair Guides | Wiring Diagrams | Wiring Diagrams | AutoZone.com The regulator grounds the wire from the light when the key is on and when it starts, the wire gets 12v back to shut the light.

Check that wiring diagram. The alternator grounds the wire to the light with no charge and when it charges, the ground is taken away, ie voltage added to turn the light off.
