    Default What voltage should the alternator be producing (3.0 V6 CDTi)?

    Hi, does anyone know what voltage a healthy alternator be producing? I've used the extra information coming from the CD30 audio system (by holding down the Settings button until it beeps and paging through using the BC button to a screen that shows a value U30: and a voltage reading - I think this is the alternator output).

    Firstly I hope this screen is telling me the alternator output??, secondly it is showing 14.5V (goes up or down a little) - is this right?

    Thanks
