Could someone tell me why the red alert light flashes on my F4 after every shot?

With a new roll of film in the camera I might be able to click off 7-8 frames before the red alert light begins to flash after each shot. The film winds forward OK and if I turn the camera off and on again it will fire again, but the alert light always comes on. I had sent this camera to Nikon for a CLA and to have a look at this problem, but it keeps occurring with both the MB-20 and MB-23 battery packs. Kind of annoying. I have the camera ISO set to match the film and it does the same thing set to DX.

Any ideas?
