Re: alternator testing

Where did you read the voltage, it will be highest at the alternator and lower at the battery. A slipping alternator belt when cold can be an indication that the alternator is being worked hard to replenish the battery after a cold start. Check the condition of the belt and it's tension before conde...

Re: Egine Bay Temperature Warning Light

Is there an engine bay temp warning light?

The dash gauge for coolant is a bit vague, "normal" is any where from 82 to 110'.

Swap the units, IIRC they are only held in place by one T50 bolt, this is the same bolt as the seats are held down with.

Re: Engine light, help please
