DOES ALTERNATOR/VOLTAGE REGULATOR AFFECT RADIO PERFORMANCE?
August, 18, 2007 AT 6:32 PM
2005 Tundra 4.7 Crew Cab, 17k miles. If my alternator/voltage regulator was affected by a surge/spike and it wasn't putting out enough power, would it cause my radio to underperform, ie: doesn't have the powerful sound it once did. The alternator's readout was LOWER when revving at 2000rpm, than ay idling. Any advice would be appreciated. (This stated with a power surge through the cigarette lighter from a device I plugged in).
