If you see 16V then that is when you need to worry.

I think 15V means the battery is being charged alot and once at a reasonable capacity will drop to 14V.

14V isn't bad, it may just mean the battery is in a good state of charge.

hi Pete

bless u for the great info Thumbs Up

has been a steep learning curve for me and how the more modern land rovers differ from the earlier models , is good to now know what the revelant alternator outputs should be

thks again Bow down

prefer this version, seeing it also has the temp output reading , will be interesting to see how effective the A/C is when the summer returns
