    i will be installing a digital voltage display used for stereo systems just to keep an eye on things .. the best part is that it is adjustable and must be set up with a volt meter to ensure accurate readings!

    How is your conencted? He may have a different type of alternator.... i.e 3 wire or single wire. If your problem is fixed I wouldnt worry about it.

    At some point GM did this on purpose. The idea was if you are wide open you need all the power you can get for a short time such as passing or climbing a steep hill with a heavy load. That means shutting down the AC and alternator. I suspect if you connect a voltmeter to the alternator trigger wire you will see it go to zero at WOT.

    Stop beating on your truck, it will last longer.

    Just read the second page lol. That's weird, but I'm glad it's fixed.

    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.
