    M1010 Mystery wire near fuse box, pictures included

    Yup, it's not original and added by the previous owner ... or maybe the service unit that had it before the vehicle was released did something custom. The only option for you, unfortunately, is to trace it down ... Good luck.

    Whats wrong now?

    Sorry guys for not getting back to Mike quicker. Last few days I have been traveling and wanted to address the server slowness head on. I think the last set of tweaks will do it - Mike and I will keep an eye on it. Thanks for the patience. -graham

    Battery, alternator or glow plug issue...

    boiling batteries.

    I believe that is the glow plug relay (just on the otherside of the bulkhead) ... you will *experience* that for a few cycles ... maybe for a total of 20 seconds or so. That 'red' is the draw side, not the over-charging 'red' that you are also experiencing, right ? The alternators do have a...

    14.7/8 is definitely the higher part of what I would consider safe then. However, across both batteries, it should not pass 29.6. Well, something is not all OK because your batts are frying, but it could a previous condition with them that is now surfacing. Try swapping the location of the...

    Yeah, I have seen those ... but looking for something to stay in the cab/cargo area. However. I liked how those HMMWV ones were used - if I can stay 'green' .... Thanks Kenny ... -graham
