If it wasn't for bad luck...
Well I've been in Wichita Falls, TX for over a month for school. No issues with the truck since I've been here. Well...8 hours before I planned on leaving I am going to get fuel...all my gauges shut off as well as the radio and my Pillar gauges shut off. But the truck kept running. Took it to the Autozone next door and the batteries and alternator checked out. Drove back to base, sat in the lot and looked at my gauge wiring and headlight wiring and it looked good. Let the truck idle, you can see the headlights getting brighter then going back to normal. So I put the truck to high idle, cranked up the heat, and turned on my radio. The lights flickered worse...motor would bog and you could hear the heat blow softer everytime the lights flickered.
So I took it to Oriellys and the guy checked my alternator...he got a 58A reading off it, but didn't have me disconnect one of the batteries so I'm thinking its an incorrect reading. got a new alternator on the way in the morning...but I don't want to swap it out again if I dont need to. Just put a new alternator in the truck back in October...what else could it be? Does anyone know where all the grounding points are? I just need to get back to Florida ASAP! Is there anyone around the Wichita Falls area that can help me? Thanks
