Going to stop on the way home this evening and pick up four new belts to replace everything on the engine and a 24" pre-made wire to use as a ground from alt to neg post on battery. That should just about put an "Amen" to it!
Not that I've ever experienced it myself
I had erratic volt meter issues before and now after installing my new CARQUEST Alternator that is the internal volt regulated one just as my previous one was. I can hit bumps and rattle the piss out of the truck and no issue. Going down the smooth highway it will give me the battery warning light and then go back to charging. Like stated prior, it did this exact thing before the new alternator and is still doing it. I have checked for loose connections and all seems fine. I am going to do a ground connections check and see if there are any loose frame, motor grounds? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
Bad connector plug or bad voltage regulator? I made the female plugs within the three wire plug fit tighter and no change. It was doing this with the old alternator, so it has to be the female plug right? Please help! Very annoying!
My RV's alt connector's clip is weak, the one that's like this:
I had to put a zip tie around it, run under the clip part to make it fit in tightly.
