I was finally able to get some time to work on my truck this weekend. Here is what I had. I was getting good voltage on the batteries. At the starer relay I was getting 24 volts. At the fuse box however I had the following. All of the red wires comming in has 12 volts on them. However 3-brn-4 which has a 25 amp fuse and goes to the ignition switch only had 4 volts on it. Another fuse in the upper l/h corner marked for eng con, only had 6 volts. when I would turn the ignition switch on the pannel warning lights would just barley glow. Next morning I come out turn on the ignition switch and over the course of 4-5 seconds the volt meter swings from red to green very slowly, like something was becoming unstuck. Since then it has been fine. Is there a relay or selinoid some where that could have been sticking. I am really not cool with "self fixs" as it's only time before it lays down again. Thanks for the help. oh and the reference page for the brown wire I noted was F-8.
