It runs fine during the day. When I turn the headlights on the volt meter pegs out to the left all the way and it puts a strain on the motor. Sometimes even kills it. But sometimes it runs fine and voltmeter stays normal. And then sometimes when I pull the switch no lights come on the voltmeter pegs to the left (low side) and the oil pressure gage pegs all the way to the right. Let I sit off for a bit and goes back working but still pegging the voltmeter.

Do you
have the same problem?

HERE. AS LONG AS IT TAKES

JUST RESPOND

IT WAS FINE. WHEN?

THIS JUST STARTED?

ANY WILD-DONKEY MODIFICATIONS BEEN ADDED ON?

DOES THIS BRIGHT. AND DIM SETTINGS?

SEND PICS OF JEEP AND A SHOT UNDER THE HOOD WITH THE AIR CLEANER REMOVED--MAYBE STANDING ON BUMPER LOOKING DOWN VIEW. IF YOU WILL

IN DETAIL, WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO THE JEEP---WHAT YOU USE IT FOR---WHAT'S BEEN DONE RECENTLY

DO YOU HAVE AN INEXPENSIVE DIGITAL VOLTMETER. KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT USING ONE. WHAT ABOUT A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT?

I HOPE YOU'RE ONE TO BE ABLE TO DIY---I CAN PROBABLY TALK YOU THRU MOST CJ FIXES

YOUR TURN
