    Default Voltage Showing On the BD

    Went through the bd computer today and the voltage is showing 13.4/5 volts..no higher...it does go down to 12ish when i load the system..heater lights etc...it does rise to around 13.1...thought though it should be higher?

    Could the alternator be on its way?

    Whats the lowest the voltage drops to...to put the dash light on?

    I may well be totally wrong here but the battery is only a 12V so therefore your not gonna get much higher.

    Please correct me if i wrong, I know nothing about electrics
