    I'd say the alternator is OK (and the light doesn't come on when the gauge is low because you haven't waited long enough for the actual voltage to get low enough). And since nothing says you are...

    Those reading would indicate that the fans were drawing too much current if these regulators simply turned the alternators on an off like some of the older systems. But internal regulators increase...

    Aux cooling fan or AC fan, switch?

    When the clutch cycles off, the Otterstat will keep the cooling fans on if the engine temp is above normal temp anyway. So I don't understand what you are after...

    Just for kicks, measure your (D)rive and (A)lternator pulleys.
    Your AlternatorRPM = D/A x EngineRPM, which should be 1800-2000 at idle for proper output.

    FWIW, the Brown/Yellow wire also feeds...

    Yeah, I said "big" in post 20 with an explanation as to why. ...no idea where the brain fart came from other than thinking about the remote possibility of the drive pulley being changed and...

    All 12V cars should keep the voltage at 12+ during idle (~13.5+ is normal). That's with stock accessories on. Ds are known to fall short with the stock alternators/age/etc., but one with an...

    One way to look at it is, while EFI gives you a new reliable fuel delivery system, Stage II gives you a fresh engine with a little more performance.
    Their prices say a lot... lol

    If it turns over at a normal speed, you should first see if it is ignition (spark) or fuel keeping it from starting/cranking up.

    What kind of alternator is it?
    If it is a GM style and the light comes on when the key is on then goes off once running, a very common reason for low voltage is the pulley is to big. GM basically...

    You would have to start a new thread & poll and cram it all into 10 choices max...probably not enough w/o narrowing down the price first.

    I was thinking DD usually means runs well/reliable too. And that "average" would allow for most of the differences/balance things out.

    Looks like I need to reword it and add higher values anyway...
