Thread: Low amperage alert

    Low amperage alert

    I had an alternator failure today. Noticed that my display was showing negative amperage. Is there an alert for low amperage or alternator failure or just by looking at the amp reading?

    There isn't an amperage alert for the low level but the proper way to alert that scenario is to have your battery voltage threshold at ~13v red low, depending on battery tech and voltage ranges. Then your alternator goes out your voltage will immediately drop to battery capacity triggering the warning.
