Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

So it looks like I've been [very?] lucky with mine (assuming Big Pete uses the standard testing procedure), as his figures are at [or normalised to] 250 rpm.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

You should be able to read a multimeter reading while cranking and/or starting the engine and you could do a test from cold and then after a journey and see if the voltage while cranking is different.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

. Anyone got some input on that situation? Top of Google hits suggest that your charging voltage is possibly a touch low but the voltage when starting is normal at 10 volts and I would have thought that was the critical figure in this context. I would look to blame something else. You checked your ...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

The gauges look good Rob. Can you rotate them in the housing so that the pointers when in their average or standard reading are all aligned?. This is not just for neatness but for ease of reading that all is ok. Where did you find in the bulkhead to bring the wiring etc through from the engine compa...

I had my battery tested at the local garage. Switched off the voltage was 12.2 Under heavy load to simulate starting the voltage was 10.8 With engine ticking over it read 14.3 volts. So all good; which leaves me confused as to why on occasions recently I've gone to the car and the battery has been f...

Yes, Chris, I'm suspecting that's the case. I'll take it to my local garage who have a tester as soon as they have a free slot.

Took it shopping mainly to find out if it would start ok. it did, but recently I've been finding the battery completely and utterly flat.
