It sounds like your stereo is drawing more power than your alternator can put out. You can upgrade to a larger alternator. I believe you can still get a 100amp alternator for a GM. The other thing to do would be to put a capacitor into the system. Talk to some stereo guys but I know you can get them on e-bay for decent prices. Hope this helps.

Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

Why has my truck suddenly gotten louder while moving and back to normal when I stop?

You might be able to place the truck's rear end on Jack stands. Then put in gear with the brake off. So the rear wheels can spin, while some walks around the truck to help isolate the sound. Once you have a closer area to listen to isolated. A trick to isolate more is to use some thing like a wooden rod and place it on ect. the engine on one end and the other end to your ear. Move it around til the sound is the loudest. If you have a stick shift you can use the gear shift to listen to the trans. while some else is driving as well.

I have a1990 Toyota landcruiser and my problem is , once in a while, the temperature gage pegs up with my fuel gage and stays up for several minutes then goes back to normal. It also does it when I fill my...

Fuel gauge and temp gauge are separate circuits that have only one thing in common - the supply.

In order to ensure readings aren't affected by the normal battery voltage fluctuations the instruments work at a lower voltage than the battery. Both 5 volts and 10 volts used to be fairly common and in order to achieve this a voltage regulator is included in the circuitry.

In the early days an electromechanical device was used but that was replaced by a semiconductor device a long time ago. The early device used to fail and cause exactly the symptom you describe but the later ones generally do not but I expect your problem is somewhere in that vicinity.

Check Gages light comes on 99 GMC Surban

one of the gauges must a fluxuated enough to have the computer turn the light on,I've seen mostly gas gauges fluxuate,but train your eye where the voltage is in normal mode because it will still look like the needle is up there but it may only be 11 volts instead of 13-14 volts running.

When I start my 2009 Chevy Silverado it shows 15 1/2 volts. Within a few minutes it goes to 12 1/2 volts. Is this normal?

This is normal, My '04 GMC, goes to around 16 at first start-up then drops to 131/2 after it runs a while.

High temperature gauge reading, low battery voltage reading

The loud whine you speak of indicates one of two things a bad serpentine belt or alternator, The first thing would be to check the belt.Look for cracks worn spots or glazing. If the belt looks ok then take the belt off and start the engine for a minute or so and listen for noise.
