[DML] Re: Charging Problems

Most of the time problems like this turn out to be a bad connection
somewhere. More often then not, it is a ground. It can also be a bad
or incorrect belt. If the belt is riding on the bottom of the pulley
it will slip no matter how tight you make it. Measure the outut
voltage at the alternator when the lights dim. If it is not dropping
there you need to do voltage drop measurements to find out where the
problem is.
