So, after it warms up the idle drops to normal idle then surges. It surges between 900 and 1300, while it's doing that the dash lights dim and brighten and the battery light comes on. If I turn the key off and back on it stops. It seems to run fine when it's not at idle, but the battery light comes on. After I kill the ignition and turn it back on it idles fine until I rev it up to above 3000. The headlights dont work in low-beam, only high-beam. I also took the alternator to my local shop and had them test it, they said it was fine.
I used the Helms manual to troubleshoot the charging system but got stuck when I went to check the connection to the ECM (or ECU). I cant find the damn connector to check it. Where is it? I'm looking under the dash but cant find it, a picture would be nice.
Any thoughts as to what this could be?
have the same problem?
