clio battery light

mother inlaws clio 1.4 auto m reg, the battery light goes out after stat up and will sometimes light up whilst driving. put meter to battery and was ok and altenater was charging, this with no light lite. after some time i got the light to light up so i poped bonnet and pulled battery negative off. the car continued to run indicating alternater ok. later that day the light came on i tried thbe same thing with negative lead but this time the car died indicating no charge. put lead back on car would start and light stay on. it seems to stay off until the car heats up although a guess. i put other battery on and with light on sometimes its charging sometimes its not. would this be a faulty alternater or some wiring fault.
