You can jump off a off truck ,just dont have the truck running the
altnator can be to strong for the diodes in the tractors charging system (rectiforer).

    Today's rectifiers won"t put out voltage if they are not hooked up to at least 7 volts if your trying to run it off just the alternator and you eng has a electric fuel shut off on the bottom of the carb it wont work .

    I bet its alright I have seen very few rectifiers blown from jumping

The battery won't start the generator. It has to be hand pulled to start. how do I recharge the battery?


Sometimes it is more expensive to fix the problem with the generator charging system than purchase a small 12v battery charger. I would purchase a 12v small battery charger (5A) that you can keep plugged into your house hold power. This will maintain the battery at full charge so it is ready to start when you need it.

When the car is jumped it runs with the cables on all gauge everything works fine once you take the cables off the car idles fine untill you press the gas, then dies out<<


The alternator is not generating enough current to the coil to maintain the spark. This could be a bad coil or a bad alternator or BOTH. When you are connected with cables the extra voltage required as you accellerate the gas pedal is pulled from the DONOR car battery and motor. When running at idle your car DISCONNECTED there is not much demand for power. As you press on the gas the RPM increases requiring more spark than you car can produce and it cant recover... trying to keep up drains what charge there is from being jumped off and the car dies. The fact that it dies leads me to believe the alternator should be your first troubleshooting area... You can test this with a multimeter. You should get 14+ volts coming out of the back of the alternator. The car requires 12 volts to run the engine and the extra volts are put back into the battery as a charge...less than 12 volts is a sign of a bad alternator and can cause your problem.

How does the minn kota 65 all terrain run on 24


You should only run the motor with a 24v battery or two 12v batters 'jumped' out. To jump the two batteries, connect the positive on one batter to the negative on the other battery and hook the trolling motor battery cables up to positive and negative terminals that are NOT jumped out as you would normally. Don't run this with 12v as you will have serious problems if you do. They do not make a 65lb thrust in 12v - too much pound thrust to run off of 12v.

I'm having the same problem. I have a 1992 Rodeo V-6 4x4. I replaced the alternator, battery, and even took out a killer stereo system in case of shorts (didn't have the patience to check). Except mine does start with a little boost. I'm thinking of replacing the battery for a bigger one, but not sure if that will take care of the problem. Help anyone?

Wiring diagram for radio


if your truck still has the wire connectors for the radio harness then your best bet would be to purchase the plug in adapters from wal-mart or local stereo shop,it should only cost about 10-15 bucks and would clarify your connectivity issues.or get a test light and at least determine power & ground wires then run new speaker wire
