idiot light

Recommended Posts

Bad starter will not make the battery light come on. It comes on when it sees too much, or most likely in your case, too little voltage. Check the connections from the alternator to the battery, and make sure that alternator is cranking out some volts.

Finally broke down and brought it to a shop for a diagnostic. They tested the batt. & alt. Said they were both good. Said it's probly all the oil leaking on the connections & the starter. Wanted to rebuild the entire truck, I said "how much do I owe you" :cheers: Replaced the starter today....what a pain that was. Turned the key and it fired up like a new truck. Valve cover gasket is next, then some engine de-greasing.
