This can be a sign that the voltage regulator is not working properly. First what is high. A normal battery is between 11 volts and 13.8 volts. When the system is charging a reading of 14 to 14.5 volts is not uncommon. With the vehicle off and the switch turned to on you should see the normal battery voltage. Vehicle gauges have been know to be off due to many different things. Over charging a battery can cause it to explode. I would look over the above information and if it is showing that it might be over charging (above 14.5 volts) get it checked and fixed really soon.

Voltage regulator is defective. Have it replaced or this will ruin your battery.

Because the voltage is high?

The voltage regulator is responsible for regulating alternator output. Look at the volt gauge in the dash. If it is too high generally that means that the regulator is bad. Take the truck to Autozone and have them check it for you. They offer this service free of charge and will do it on the truck.

When your battery gage reads high, it means that your voltage regulator is shot. Your voltage is too high. You are about to wreck your battery and some of your electronics. You are facing an extremely expensive repair job if you do not get a fairly inexpensive part fixed.

Depends... Can i use a jack?

how do you replace a fitting from a high pressure oil pump that is leaking oil in a 2001 ford F350 diesel truck?

It is bacicly the more high class ford pickup

That depends on it's gauge, the lower the gauge the higher load it can handle.Another AnswerMaximum demand describes the maximum electrical load applied to a high-voltage (high-tension) electrical cable.

check the fuse, it should be linked to other devices in the vehicle if you've noticed other components (radio, interior lights, etc.) not working. if the gauge is pegged in the super high or low position and the fuse is good, pull apart dash and check voltage reading at gauge wiring (you need voltage values from ford to determine if the gauge is out or if it is indeed telling you the right reading). If the gauge wiring checks out, the sender unit on your fuel pump went out and it is integral with the fuel pump itself. Ala, time to replace the fuel pump. Good luck.

It connects a high voltage source to a high voltage user.

Either your oil pressure gauge is reading low , your engine temperature gauge is reading high , or your fuel gauge is reading low so your almost out of gas

There is no danger in coming in contact with high voltage. The danger ensues when you're also in contact with a much different voltage at the same time. The difference in voltage between two points causes a current through your body, and that current is what plays havoc with your nervous system and muscles. Linemen working in a "cherry-picker" bucket truck actually connect themselves to the line they're working on, the truck is kept insulated from the ground, warning cones are set up around the truck, and nobody touches the truck while it's clamped to the line. A bird can perch harmlessly on a bare high-voltage line because he's not touching anything else at the same time.

Two options. Either the alternator is bad (voltage reg), or the computer is no good. Turn the head lights on (at night). If thy flicker, like high beams, then the computer is fried. C.E.

The extra high voltage transformer receives high voltage electricity from the power plant. The transformer reduces the high voltage into a less voltage and distributes it to several power lines.

High voltage is good for transmission of electricity since line losses are less with high voltage transmission.

Connect freon and a gauge to the low side ac port. Fill the system to full on the gauge, with the engine running, and the ac on high.

Either your engine coolant temperature is too high , your oil pressure too low , or your gas gauge is near or at empty

Possibly it is a capacitive voltage divider that can be used in order to divide a high AC voltage with an isolated (there is no common electrical rail between high voltage and low voltage circuitry) circuit.

Transformers are used to convert electricity from high voltage to low voltage and from low voltage to high voltage.

The output of an AC generator can be stepped up with a transformer. The high voltage can be more easily transferred over longer distances with higher gauge wire. At the destination, the high voltage can then be stepped back down with another transformer.
