After educating me on the external voltage sense wire, I investigated its whereabouts and found it to be cut by previous owners since they converted from EFI to carb on an 88 Monte Carlo SS.
They jumpered from BAT to Terminal. Lights dimmed, and further dimmed with more load turned on, gauges dropped, etc. The schematic showed the remote sense wire going back to ALT fuse @ fuse block and being hot with IGN on. Cut open what was left of the engine harness, there's the brown/white wire, DMM read battery w/key on. Removed jumper, connected it up, and WAAHOOWAA!
Now, it has a higher charging voltage, 14.8, then down to 14.2 as it warms up. No variance in gauges, engine even runs better.
Thank you, John. Let me get you something cold to drink........ [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
