If I had the same problem you're having, I'd begin by getting a truck
like mine and having it side-by-side. I'd start measuring voltages on
the same wires. I'd start looking for broken leads, and improper grounds.
I know on my pickup truck, if the connection at the starter solenoid
isn't good, I get weird voltages on the system. My truck's tachometer
will float up and down a little. Until I figured that one out, it was
Start with measuring voltages at various places on the wires going into
and out of the alternator. Trace them back a few inches at a time and
see if they're still good. Wiggle some wires around and see if you can
get it to make contact and begin charging, etc.
