While driving voltage gage will drop to zero I have a new battery and alternater is good . If I shut the truck off and
restart the gauge will reed 14 volts after driving a few feet gauge drops to zero. And now while vehicle is running all
lights dim and all Gages go to the far left position. What causes this????
Defective alternator. Someone must have done things improperly with the wiring and comprimized the operation of the onboard voltage regulator. Replace. output regulated voltage should be 13.5 to juice a 12V battery.
Voltage regulated maybe the cause
Regulator sorry bout the typo
fergie, just for future reference, when you make a typo I do it all the time, copy your post. paste it in another answer box, edit it to correct, post, then delete post w/typo
