N/a Question


Recommended Posts

It's the charge in the Battery, but that gives you both really. If you look when the engine is off and ignition is on it'll be lower than when it's running which shows you that the alternator is charging it.

Does that make sense, I can't seem to get it into words :blink:

no its the charge going to the battery! im sure bibbs will clear this up soon?

If you turn the ignition on but don't start the engine the meter will read approx 12v, this is the charge in the Battery (it must be as the alternator isn't charging at this point).

If you then start the engine the meter will show approx 14v which indicates that it is being charged by the alternator.
