Loss of voltage after fuel leak
Got a good one for you guys. My fuel filter cap o-ring was leaking yesterday. So first thing this morning I went and bought a new filter and o-ring. Installed it and the new o-ring from autozone would not seal. While priming it, fuel sprayed out for 10-15 seconds before I got out of the truck and saw it. I then sprayed degreaser and pressure washed the top of the motor.
Bought another o-ring and fixed the leak.
Now for the interesting part. When I was priming it , the voltage started dropping. Dropped all the way to 0. Unhooked the batteries. Both of them were at 12.4v. What did I possibly short out? Has anyone had this happen to them after a fuel leak or after washing?
I pressure wash the engine pretty regularly, never had this happen before.
Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks
