Battery is too low, but alternator is obviously charging. Swap out the battery, or have yours tested. 10 volts is a discharged battery.

Check fuel pressure. Sounds like a bad pump or plugged fuel filter.

SOURCE: Voltmeter drops to 9 volts on Chev 454 P30 motorhome

this is eithere a loose positive cable from the altenator to the battery or the regulator in the altenator is about to fail. if you have not had any problems starting the vehicle then most likely its a loose connection between the gauge and the charginging circuit or the gauge is faulty. take a multimeter and test the charging votage at the altenator while the vehicle is running it should measure 13.5 volts and should not change more than .5 volts. if the voltage drops more than 1 volt the regulater is bad and the altenator needs to be replaced. if it is working fine then looke for a bad connection make sure all positive and ground cables are tight. if they are replace amp gauge

SOURCE: when the Jeep was new the volt meter read 14

Generally the standard voltage should be 13.5 to 15.5 depending on the load that is being put on the vehicle and age of the battery an older battery may require more voltage to charge. Unless the voltage drops below 13 you are probably ok.

1989 Ford Ranger. Wont start. Just clicks. Dome light works. Other lights don't. Any suggestions?


Sounds like flat or faulty battery if the main lights don't work. The dome light is only 5 amps and will light on about 10 volts. Starter needs 13 volts and 160 amps. First thing to do is put the battery onto charge on a 6 amp charger.

Once the battery is charged up, try it and if that doesn't work, check fuses and then the starter and solenoid.

Battery light stays on. Guage cluster amp meter reads normal charging 13-14 amps. Truck starts normal.


If charging light is on, it means some thing in the charging system is going bad. use a test light!-- battery voltage at battery when truck is off should be at least 12.6 or better, if alternator was charging good. if less than 12.4 and it is charging ok. battery is going bad. when engine is running, at the battery there should be at least 13.8 to 14.2 volts or better.if alternator is ok, all checks are done at the battery posts to determine voltage. Hope this helps you out! if less than 13.8 or lower while running. alt, is bad.

I think I have an alternator problem? The charge needle on the dash guage is spiking to 16 volts off and on. I put a voltmeter to the battery and it is only charged to about 11 volts. With the engine...


Hello
The normal charge of alternator on idling is about 13 to 14 volts. 12 is acceptable but keep in mind it will need attention soon. The needle fluctuates due to the revs of the alternator - there is nothing to worry about. Just look that the charge is always above 12V on idle.

Battery light & brake light flashes on & off. went to parts store & had battry & charging system checked. was told battery was bad , bought new one .problem still there not as bad...


You need to get a volt meter on it. Your battery should be around high 12 to 13 volts while not running, and increase a little without going over 14 1/2 volts running.

1989 Chev PU , Aircon Dead , Want to Convert


Anyone can convert R12 to R134. It is as simple as screwing the two adapters on the low side and high side charging ports. Now to charge it you need to evacuate it as you said and then charge the system with R134. The hardest part is finding the way to evacuate and then recharge the system without going to a repair facility.
