Electrical issues


Recommended Posts

2001 VLX 

Having issues with my volt meter on the dashboard replaced the battery’s replaced the alternator and when in idle it reads 12volts on the dash but at the battery it reads 14 volts when under load the battery drops to 12.5-13 volts and the dashboard drops to 10.5 and alarms start going off any suggestion?

I'd use a multimeter and check the voltage at the dash with that.  If the voltage is actually low then check all the grounds on the busbar and then check the gauge connections.  Work your way back from there

Problems solved loose connection at the fuse panel, the positive wire was shorting out almost started a fire 🔥 but everything fixed
