#1: 73 beetle battery charging 14 volts, generator light still on

Posted on 2006-07-20 01:31:31 by Rich

My generator light turned on solid and the red "b" light also. I
checked the generator
by taking the wires off and grounding the DF connector to gen frame and
started engine
and checked voltage from D+ to ground....at about 2k rpn I get around
23 vdc, so I know
the battery is charging. One other point, my fuel guage dropped to
empty even though
I have 1/2 tank.....blown fuse? Please help, Thanks, Rich

Fuse.
On '73, Fuse #12 feeds all the things that are out.

Speedy Jim,

Guess what....I was sitting in my car and the gen lite was on , no fuel
guage, no turn sigs. I honked the horn and everything started working,
but when I went down the road
I was getting +18 vdc on my gen.......I bought a new voltage regulator
and I think it fixed
everything. Thanks,

&gt; Speedy Jim
