Pulsing headlights...some more info
Ok, as posted a while ago I'm suffering from the pulsing headlight and dash display issue. The belt looks ok, couldn't figure out how to get it off though. Multimeter across the battery with the engine running gives an unsteady readout ranging from 12Vish up to 14Vish.
Based on this, I'm leaning towards a rectifier and/or alternator fault. Could anyone back me up on this, or am I thinking wrong?
Also, would voltages like that be enough to fire up erroneous MCSF messages? I'm suffering with them intermittently. Got a cable on order to plug it in to MultiECUScan, but it's not here yet so can't expand on that any more.
(Also thrilled that the new Circoli stat I fitted is fauly, leaking along a seam. Not impressed; nor am I impressed with ECP customer service right now!
