Question about Radio Communications
I can put a hot battery in my rv, and it will usually crank. But, I have a small surface mounted compass on my dashboard, and when I turn on my ignition to crank, that compass goes crazy, spinning forward,backwards, all around, and want stop, and this compass has no electrical going to it, it's just sitting up there, and also, several of my gauges on my instrument read incorrectly. I'm looking for a starting point to try to troubleshoot this problem, and don't know where to start. I had the alternator tested, and it tested to be good. Please give me some help..........thanks RANDY MORGAN
The Alternator only comes into play AFTER the vehicle is running so I would bench test the starter for excessive starter draw. If the starter tests good I would change out the Solenoid. That may explain the guages reading incorrectly. As to the compass, possibly a shorted wire near there could cause it to spin. Try relocating it.
