ALTENATOR PUTS OUT 13.9 VOLTS
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 3 months ago.

13.9 with loads on ?

how about a scan any fault codes ?

the instrument cluster itself is 90 % the problem as long as the connector to it is good and alternator is charging ,13.9 is border line , if you rev it up does voltage increase ?
