Dimly lit alternator light remains on

1985 Nissan Stanza alternator light remains on dimly but dashboard ammeter shows proper charging of battery. A little worrisome at night but not visible and no bother in daytime. Thanks for your help!

Check the condition of Alt, belt and adjust it if needed.

If the Batt light goes out while driving and ulluminates at stop, your Alternator is about to gives up it's life. Once your brake and battery lights comes on and remain on, your Alternator is stops charging and need to be replace/rebuilt. Keep a close eyes to it because it'll let you stranded when it stops charging.

Im confused. Do you have a Idiot light AND an amp gauge ? I don't think I've ever seen both before.
