Re: 97 f350 problem (Please need Help)
if you get it running again, after testing batteries, check voltage output of alternator, it should be around 13.7v-14.4v(somewhere in that range, +/- some)... if its a little lower, like around 10.5v-12v, try disconnecting 1 battery, and see if your voltage comes up. If it does come up, leave it and let it charge the 1 battery 1st. you could charge the other with an ac
charger at the same time. ive had similar issue before, but... I drained mine trying to start in cold weather for a looooong time one morning (glow plug relay issue). Once i assisted the alternater in getting the batteries up to about 12.5v-13v, the alternater was able to pickup the load of both batteries, and maintain proper voltage. Its been a month now and no issues since. Mine maintaines about 14.3-14.4v now..... P.S. i originally drained mine to about 9v. Let us know what you find.
