Mark, Has yours been doing this for a long time and never noticed any problems? I was thinking of a couple of things I have done to my car lately that could have caused this to happen, but I'm not sure. The only things I have done lately is replace the low fuel indicator, which is working fine, and disconnected the wires on my column that control the backup lights and ran the wires to a toggle switch. I disconnected the toggle switch and hooked the wires back at the column thinking that was doing it for some reason but it didn't make a difference. I guess as long as it's coming back down where it should be maybe it'll be alright. A friend of mine that rebuilds alternators said it wouldn't be good if it stayed on the 3/4 mark all the time because then it could be over-charging possibly. He also said that I could be having a problem with my voltage regulator. If yours has been doing this and you haven't had any problems, then hopefully mine will be alright also. Thanks, Donnie.
