I have a Digital VM plugged into the Cigarette Lighter power socket, I don't recall actually taking a real close look at it, I will try and make a video recording though, snowing now.John, after starting what is your voltage while the glow plugs are still on?
but IIRC, some what close, it is still close to 12 volts or in the middle 11s
Don't hold me to that, but I will get a video as soon as I can.
I keep a Battery Tender on the truck, so it is always Floating at 13.3 to 13.6 before the Key is turn ON. had to change the batteries out a couple weeks ago, they were ruined when I bought the truck last June 2022... and I just suffered through until I finally got the Parasitic Draw Fixed..... then I bought new batteries...
I keep Battery Tenders on everything we own here,
EZ Go golf cart, old from the early '90s ( just put $1500 worth of new batteries in it
...... 1st time the Trojan I replaced batteries, and I bought it used in 2005 )
Zero Turn mower
'58 Kubota tractor
'09 Piaggio MP3 scooter
the old EZ Go batteries, I keep a very expensive trickle charger on them. I monitor water level close every 60 days, Distilled only.
Summit brand Charger --- gets plugged every time Cart is left unused, period......
