Re: 98 Taurus Voltage Regulation
Ohm a battery, that sounds hazardous to a meter, or is it? Its been several years since I was in HVAC school (only took a semester) but seems like I was taught to measure ohm's you actually used the voltage of the meter to test, you wouldnt meausre a live circuit.
If the car was at idle, alternator's output was 14.8v, amperage was at 9 wouldnt that be considered normal with the fuel pump,computer and all the sensors are drawing current?
quote: The battery is getting about 9 amps of charge current. That seems too high just to keep it charged. When a lead-acid battery is fully charged at 14 volts, the charge current should only be an amp or two.
Thats fine on a battery charger, but if the car is running then there is a drain on the battery therefor amps will be higher.
Thats all I know to say about this thread, drive it, its fine
