92 F150, 351W, power everything, a/c
On my way home my (stock 80 amp) alternator seemed to go bad. The guage
dropped close to 8 and the alternator light went on. I took the alternator
out and went to have it tested. it tested fine at just below 14 volts. So
after I got home and put it in the guage still read the same and the
alternator light was still on. Truck starts fine, this is the first time
this has happened where the alternator turned out to be fine.
When engine not running the battery reads ~12.5v. When running it reads
~11.5v. Not sure how long it will be OK but it is for now.
What should I be looking at to see why the guage and light are acting that
A couple of weeks ago I had some wires get wrapped around the steering
column and break. The brake light wire came off and shorted. I replaced
the fuse and fixed all the wires and now everything seems to be working fine
except the turn signals. They don't come on at all. The brake lights, tail
lights and hazard lights all work as expected. All fuses check OK.
Not sure where to go with this one, anyone?
