Hey there,
Hope your fine
i used your advise, i turned on the lights, seat heat and rear defroster and i enter test number 09 and it showed me a range btw 13.5 and 14.3, but the battery light on the dash board turned on maybe once or twice after that, then nothing.
what do you think ? should i worry
