    Help! L3240 won't start when cold

    Bferris01, To test the temperature sensor you'll need to know the exact coolant temperature and resistance value of the sensor. It is best if you can do this at two known temperatures. Since you're unlikely to have the exact temperatures referenced in the WSM, I've calculated the equation...

    B2650 Alternator Output for LED Lights?

    You might be drawing less than the rated watts suggest. I went through the trouble of measuring the current draw on a variety of the smaller LED lights (18, 27 and 36 watt units).
