HelloCustomer and welcome to Just Answer. At any time you have any questions, need wiring diagrams, images, or service information, don't hesitate to ask. I'll do my best to help you solve your vehicles problem. The voltage regulator inside the alternator is failing. What you see on the dash is the results of overcharging. 12volt components are not made to run on more than 15.3 volts.
