I went out and put my boat battery in the car and it started and ran fine. Got it home so I could have a look.
Voltage across the battery was 12.5v with the engine off and 14.1v when running. No warning lights, battery gauge on dash is fine.
Charged truck battery overnight and it shows 13.1v. Started truck this morning with boat battery still in it and it seems fine. Battery gauge good and no warning lights. Bulb good as it came on at start up.
Turned on lights and as many acc's as possible and no dimming.
Any thoughts as to my next step. Don't really want to start replacing battery or alternator if they are not the problem. :
have the same problem?
