    If it is only driven occasionally like my classic cars, I would disconnect the battery cable or get a little device called a battery switch which you attach to the cable that lets you switch the battery off. I suspect the reason you get the light is that the battery drains and weakens during the long periods that it sits idle

    A loose fan belt as a result of a worn belt or belt tensioner may also contribute to charging problems. I'm still inclined to think there is a charging issue as opposed to a faulty dash lamp. Check both battery cables and look for a loose connection, open insulation, or corrosion.
