in my case the dash battery light came on when started ,in idle,goes off when accellerator pressed higher rpm. also had noisy pulleys. so i changed the old tensioner assembly,a new one about 55 dollars,cleaned using a brush with engine cleaner, the pulleys.they seemed a bit greasy, replaced my serpentine belt ,with a new dayco. well the noise was gone and the battery light stayed off when started. i do have a new starter,a new battery,i also had my alternator checked said it was good. this may help someone.
