Battery Power Circuit
Battery power circuit malfunctioning.
Generator gage indicates low battery charge. Do steps 1 and 2.
Remove all jewelry such as rings, dog tags, bracelets, etc. If jewelry contacts a metal surface a direct
short may result in instant heating of tools, damage to equipment, and injury or death to personnel.
Open air inlet doors (TM 9-2350-256-10). Place red multimeter lead on positive post and black lead
to ground. Check for voltage. If voltage is below 18 V dc, clean, tighten, repair, or replace necessary
cables. Crank engine and check voltage. If voltage is still below 18 V dc, go to step 2.
Place red multimeter lead on positive post and black lead on negative post of battery 1. Voltage reading
should not be below 9 V dc. Repeat on batteries 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. If any battery voltage is below 9 V dc
replace battery (see WP 0153 00).
