I checked the voltage at the battery. 12 volts with engine off. 11 volts while cranking. 14 volts with engine running.

It runs the same whether the light is on or off.

HI
Sorry for delay
so it is cutting out on and off
even the light on
did you check for spark when this
happens, so we can narrow this down
