    VW Polo 1.4 TDI (2008)

    Battery and Alternator replaced to resolve charging issue - sorted

    Vehicle stationery - steering wheel turned slightly left or right - battery light comes on / flickers intermittently

    Vehicle stationery - steering wheel turned to full lock left or right - battery light comes on and remains on until releasing full lock

    Performance of powered steering not effected

    Any takers for this one please?

    Re-check all the connections that were taken apart when the battery/ alternator was replaced are tight & plugs fully home.

    Also check the alternator drive belt is tensioned correctly.

    Thank you for your suggestions - already done but I do have an update...
    I took the car for a test drive (16 miles) no driving issues...
    The battery light did not come on until I started switching things on... then, it would intermittently flicker and extinguish as the additional load is introduced.
    So, that's when the car is being driven but when stationery, engine running, turning the steering wheel causes the battery light to flicker. (tested many times, no particular wheel position, repeatable, but no specific pattern).
    I know some might immediately suspect the alternator but I think the 'ignition on, engine off, no battery light' scenario is a major clue?
    Also please bear in mind original Bosch alternator and Bosch battery replaced with identical parts - there was a charging problem prior to replacing the alternator which the new alternator has resolved.

    Have a look at this post from the Briskoda forum :- No battery warning light/dead battery - 1.9 tdi - Skoda Fabia Mk II - BRISKODA

    Although it refers to a Fabia, I think the wiring might be the same for your Polo.
