The problem I am having is when the on board display is on for the charging system the alt. Output is 14.2 v while driving for several hours on the interstate the voltage will start to drop 13.9 - 13.6 - 13.2 - 12.9 - 12.6 - 12.2 it will stay at 12.2 for at least 20-30 min. Even with the a/c on then it will start to build voltage going upwards in the same increments then it will stay at 14.2 for a while then proceed back down. Once parked and the voltage at 12.2 I turned on everything headlights a/c rear defroster wiper and then the voltage started to build back up. So is the problen in the voltage regulator or is the charging system tied into the pcm and regulating voltage by demand only. I have had no problen as far as the battery being dead.
have the same problem?
