Intermittent alternator light

I have a focus 1800 diesel (2000, X). The engine starts and runs fine but
the alternator light will come on randomly, when this first occurred I took
it to my local garage (not ford dealer) the alternator was changed
suspecting the regulator. However the same thing is happening after the
alternator change. The battery is being charged at between 14 and 15.5V.

I have enquired of the nearest Ford dealer and they say they can put it on
WDS for 63, but will this solve anything ?

Any help would be great.

Seasider

Re: Intermittent alternator light

Problem solved.

I returned the car to the place the alternator was sourced and they found
the lead for 'Smart Charge' to the alternator had rested on a hot surface
and burned through. Spliced an extra bit of wire and all is well.
