Electrical Issues B2200

I have a 1988 B2200. I have recently replaced my battery and alternator as well as the headlight/turn signal switch. The truck runs great however when you cut the Headlights on for and extended period of time they fade and eventually go out. idling with all accessories on the truck is at 12.5 volts. I cant figure it out help will be appreciated

Your alternator is not yet doing anything. Minimum voltage, even with all accessories on, should be around 13.5 volts. Check all fuses, connections, grounds, and wiring. Have the alternator tested if you find nothing amiss.

Hi,I would check the fusible links at the battery positive terminal.They look like normal wires but can burn out and leave the insulation intact.Try to stretch them,you will find the dead one.

Fix the overheating problem first.Could just be a faulty coolant temperature sensor.
Then tackle the charging system.
Maybe a bad cable or alternator on the way out.

Could be the relay for the lowbeams is faulty, if your DRL's are your lowbeams, then your DRL Unit could be bad. Also did you blow a fuse cuz a random surge could blow the fuse

There is a headlight relay that may have failed. Look here in the engine compartment fuse box:

99 vw passat. recently had to start unplugging my battery due to a relay going out. lost my primary headlights, wipers, turn signals, air flow and now my power stays on, hence why i unplug the battery. yet...


Sounds like a combination of problems. First your battery is dead, and your alternator isn't putting out enough to run car. As for relay, replace it. I had a coil pack go out on me after I had other electrical issues so that's possible too. Go to VWvortex.Com and search the forums

Headlights out sportage 02


Well you first need to figure out if it is a problem with the alternator or the electrical system.
The alternator should be able to handle the power used by the headlights.
There could be a short in the switch but I would want to know the condition of the alternator first.

Headlight switch turns my Bronco off?!


Sounds like a weak connection somewhere close to the battery.
The alternator should be able to keep up with the extra electrical load not to mention the storage capacity of the battery. So if the headlights are killing power to the key switch, something is weak between the battery and the key.
Could be a corroded cable, connection at the solenoid, or in the fuse box.

if the battery was leaking acid from the filler caps on the battery it may have been caused by the alternator over charging (faulty voltage regulator) hence blow your light bulbs or blown the fuse check for blown fuses first,if they are OK you may have to replace the bulbs .....hope this helps....cheers
