If the first alternator
check indicates
a good
alternator
and the second indicates
the
alternatol
is bad, the problem
could stem from: loose fan belts, an intermittent diode

between tile battery and alternator and/or
ground.
Notes:
BATTERY VOLTAGE button
is disabled
in Alternator
Check mode.
F07 may display
because
someor_
has added
a number
of accessory
loads
on
the
charging
system,
thereby
increasing
current
demand
from
the
alternator.
MAKE
SURE
THAT THE ALTERNATOR
IS RATED
TO SUPPORT
THE
APPLICATION.

a 50 Ah
(12 volt) battery
is discharged
(50%).
How long
should it be charged
at the 10 amp rate? See the chart above under "NO%" and "at
10 amp rate."
In ttlOSt cases, battery
charging
tittles will vary depending
on the size, age and
condition
of tile battery. Smaller batteries should be charged
at a lower rate (4 amps)
and an extra hour added to chalge
time,
