I've been trying my darndest to figure why my carge system is pushing to high a voltage! Do I need a new volt reg,bad alt,are my grounds and connections clean ( I now have the cleanest wire connectors in Florida!!) And last night start the car and no low beams! Over charging blew the lights right! WRONG! Bad switch. Kept getting high readings all morning. Then the light came on. This volt meter might be shot. Went and bought a new one." Well I'll be damned! Charge voltage 14.4,. 30 seconds drops to 13.6. engine off 12.9v.Come On,REALLY! It was the stinkin volt meter! Lesson learned, don't assume anything,double check to be sure! Mabey I'll save me some heartache down the road.
