howdy ya'll...this is my first post and I'm glad to be a new member. The dealer I bought the truck from put an undersized batt. in it along with a block of 2x4 to keep it snug(yeah...you heard me right!) Sure enough on the way home the block came loose and wedged itself in my cooling fan! The dash lights blew out and I headed back to the dealer and dropped it off to have the fan replaced. Afterwards my dash lights wouldn't work and kept blowing fuses. The other day my alternator belt started squealing...loose belt, simple enough. However, after I tightened her up, I got a "discharge warning light" on the dash and my fuel pump started quitting on me especially going uphill or stepping on the gas(truck idles fine, bucks + hesitates when driving). I'm taking the alt. and Batt. to get tested momemtarily. I've replaced fuel filter, cleaned plugs, removed and tested the wiring harness and all grounds and connections. I'm guessing it's the voltage regulator in the alt. but if anyone has had this experience in the past and feels like chiming in it would be greatly appreciated! -Thanks, Lewis
p.s: the dealer went under so Im on my own!
