pulled apart and cleaned wires look good still have the light with all the acc on and load tester at a 100amp at idle it drops to 12v with no tester 13.5 - 14.8 idle /2000 rpm lost on this one found a broken wire on valve cover going to a small black box maybe a 14-16 gauge wire both black one goes to ground other into a harness my guess is its a superuser for injectors or coil ? any one ?

svtguy88 Check the 3-pin (I think) going to the alternator - notorious failure point that will give you a battery light. The wiring to the connector or the connector itself are common parts to break. Took me forever to find it when it happened to me.

If that's the problem, you can get a harness repair kit and solder on a new section of wire/connector.
