Ok I think we may have a problem with the charging system specifically the alternator and/or the battery cables. We need to have the charging sytem tested with a meter to see what ot is outputting.

thanks that is what I thought too

You are very welcome. These vehicles normally charge between 14.5-15 volts so if it is low and drops when you turn accessories on then I suspect a problem with the alternator.
