Well I learned a good lesson yesterday! Last week I noticed my truck wasn't quite turning over like it should...well a couple of days later I just barely got my truck started in the morning. I never had a batt light on the dash. I checked my batteries and they both were dead. So I assumed with no battery light it was my 7 year old batteries....wrong
$ 200 bucks for new batts and 3 days later same problem. This time I broke out the meter and verified it was my alternator. I could have saved a couple hundred bucks if I would have taken the time to diagnose a bit, and load test the batts. I guess I can't really be too upset as they were 7 year old batts, and a lesson learned. I still can't figure out why I didn't get a light on the dash?
