Got a stereo in my prowler,plays great even changed it for another new one,well here goes,when i am ridding it the stereo goes on and off a lot it is wired straight to the battery,mostly when i let up on my gas and the engine braking coms in,but not all the time its still does it when i am giving it gas also, sometimes the sound will go off and come right back on but mostly the power will flicker on and off a lot,checked wiring,i have checked everthing on the simple basis.
Had some guys following me the other night and they said that my lights was flikering real fast on occasions,also my headlights dim when the fan comes on and it takes a real long time for the lights to come back up the bright.I checked the battery while the machine was running and reved it up and i get around 14.8 volts.The battery acts like it is a little weak at times but i dont know it want crank long and it is dead.The more i run the prowler the wrose the system acts up,it want herdly act up when it is cold, it is a charging prolem or something,it is taking it by spells i wonder if it could be the rectifer,( voltage regulator). or the battery shorting out or what.
neve seen one do this.It is acting strange i dont know what to do to start to find the problem it is getting wrose ever time i ride,have any of you had a similar problem like this?
Any info will help me check this thing out.
terminals and grounds all tight
