indicates a good battery charge. If voltage drops below
left green area at low idle speed, batteries should be
checked. With engine operating above low idle speed,
gauge pointer should be within right green area, which
is normal operating range. If voltage drops below right
Ignition switch must be turned
ON before lights will operate.
