Battery light?

Does anyone have any idea why my battery light flickers bright,and dim sometimes? sometimes it don't do it a whole day or two, the batterys stay charged and the glow plugs seem to be cycling fine,

I would check the connections at the batteries and the alternator. I would even go ahead and have the alternator tested.

Put new motorcraft alt on mine and the light still came on every once in awhile or flickered so I replaced both batteries and solved the problem. both batteries tested good but one must be a little weak or have floaters in it. but when it comes to electrical every issue or vehicle is unique.
