FW Flickering Turbo light

Referred here by Jon Wildsmith. I have a 1994 80 series diesel. The turbo
light would occasionally flicker under hard acceleration since I've owned
the Cruiser (two months), now however it will flicker everytime I
accelerate. Another problem that may or may not be connected is I have an
intermittent showing of the alternator warning lights, sometimes
accompanying the turbo light and sometimes not. Any suggestions?

I don't know if this is relevant at all.. but I have on several
occasions put the alternator under water, and well.. that stops i from
working ... when this happens the dash lights up like a x-mastree ;) but
everything goes back to normal when the water runs out of the alternator .
As far as I know the turbo-light comes on when the pressure becomes to
hight.. but as far as I remember it stays on.. I'm not sure about this
but I think so..
Well.. just what popped into my mind when I read you mail ;)

Hi,
As Michael has pointed out, the turbo light is indicative of too high a pressure - do you have access to a pressure guage to test it?
Having said that, with the alternator light flashing as well I would start by checking the cables on the alternator, engine earth strap as well as the battery conections - problems in these areas can cause random dash lights to come on.

Matt.
One simple thing it could be would be bad contacts on one of the multi plugs on the back of the instrument cluster. It's not unknown and just require unplugging and then replugging the connectors. Might explain the flickering turbo light. However for other spurious lights coming on would lean towards the alternator.
