Console gauges - AMP gauge

On my 69Z, the amp gauge on the console does not seem to move much. Im wondering what the correct movement should be for a car at idle and when you turn on electrical components.

It looks like it stays in the center with only a very slight movement to the left when you turn the lites on.

Appreciate the help.

Re: Console gauges - AMP gauge

That gauge monitors charge current (or discharge) in or out of the battery. It generally does not do a lot. With the key on and engine off, turning on the headlights and turn signal should get some action.
