That under hood light bulb is controlled by a mercury switch within the bulb holder.

You may have to "adjust" the bulb socket so it tilts correctly. I just did this because mine wouldn't come on (now it does).
I'm afraid you misunderstood. Instead of using the light in the dash for the alternator, I used a spare bulb hooked to the exciter wire on the alternator. Until the voltages match, the light will be on.

The bulb under the hood has been gone since before I owned the car.
