    Ok, battery light just came on, I went home and on idle it would dip up and Down, when it dipped down the dash lights would flicker soobviously loosing electrical power. I unplugged the alternator expecting the engine to die but when I unplugged engine ran perfectly and battery light went off so very confuesed.. when I plug alternator in it drops and light comes on, why would this happen and what shall I check or do... Thankyou tom. I have an aum 1.8t 2003 a3 btw.

    It does sound like the alternator is dead, replace or renew.
