>Thanks for the reply. It will be awhile before I can check on the Nomad.
It's on one side of WA, and I'm on the other. Let's me tell you as much as I
can, then you can add more info if you feel it's needed.
>We have an alternator with an external regulator. The alt is NOT a single
wire. We do have an amp meter inside the car. There are NO idiot lights. The
big wire from the regulator goes to the amp meter to the battery. We haven't
checked any of those connections to see if they are hot.
>Both of us feel somewhat capable when it comes to turning a wrench, but
this has us baffled. Actually, with a car having only a couple wires it
makes us feel very incapable. Oh well, guess that's why neiher of us chose
automotives as a career.
>It seems to me that if we have a bad amp meter the battery won't be getting
a charge. I will have my dad check to see if it's hot on one side and not
the other. Thanks
