i have a couple there really handy. i like my fluke 287 but its overkill most the time. the 117 is my go to meter. but those arent cheap. i have a autozone 15 dollar cheapo under the seat if i need it.

Not bad at all. Haha! I do it almost every time.

They tell your to shut your vehicle off for liability issues just in case something were to happen like a static shock somehow igniting the vapor or something. just like how they tell you not to smoke while filling up - but I see people smoking while getting gas all the time. Haha!

I wouldn't worry about it.

Quoting myself...

Might I add: my Dad, who i would consider a "master electrician" as well, is where I first learned there's really no reason to turn your vehicle off while fueling. I'm pretty sure I've NEVER seen him turn his truck off at a pump.

Lee's got ya! haha! I'd agree with the alternator - though either way, I'd be pulling my cluster and checking the connections again just to make sure - IF IT WERE ME. I coukd be wrong. Plus Lee probably has better solutions and will probably save you that work anyway...

I'm one of those paranoid people that always think back like: "wait did I do that right" even though in the process I typically double and triple check myself.

Jankey connections can be deceiving even with a volt meter...

90% of problems are maintenance induced.

Really makes you wonder about the integrity of the battery itself..
