1996 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 250000 miles
The voltage gauge on the dash reads between 12-13 after driving with the radio/AC on. Even with these off, the voltage gauge still reads 13.
I purchased a new battery even though the guy's at AutoZone said the battery and alternator tested fine.
When I installed the new battery, I noticed that there was a black wire not attached to anything and just hanging where the battery cable wires/fuse attache to the battery.
Could this be the problem? Do I need a new voltage regulator? If I continue to use my truck with this funky voltage readings, am I doing damage to the new battery/engine.
