Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: : When you replaced the battery cables did you just go down to the local auto parts store and buy them? If so, that may be your culprit. Still being 6volt, if you just replaced them with a garden variety 12volt cable you're probably not getting enough juice through the cables. The 6volt will need twice the size cable to be as efficient. Also, check your ground strap too.

: I didn't replace the cables, they had just been replaced when I bought the jeep but they do look like regular cables that you would see on a 12 volt system. Where is the ground strap??

Click on the link for a photo I just put up. It should be below your generator and attached to your engine mount.
