"OHMING" the regulator won't always tell you anything useful.

I can help you with a charging system issue, but I need more information.

measure the battery voltage under the following conditions:

- ignition OFF


- ignition ON


- with the start button depressed.


- with the engine at about 2,000 rpm (fast idle)

let me know what you find.
