Hampton Safari with 1500 BMC
No Ignition light and  Alternator  not charging so we
replaced the ignition lamp and all was well.
Next day…..No Light … Alternator not charging again …
Replaced bulb once more and all OK
Is there an alternative to reliance on a mini 12v 2w bulb
to get your batteries charged
Thanks

Could be an alternator problem.  Seen a faulty car alternator 'blowing' light bulbs on a car.  Best to get it checked out - or buy a box of bulbs!!!

On Alternators of that period the ignition warning lamp circuit had the much more crucial task of "exciting" the alternator coils, as well as showing that all was well.

It can be replaced by a wire wound resistor or even a diode, but if it keeps blowing the correct voltage and wattage bulbs, then there's something else amiss.
