When my LB7 started to show some signs of wear, I thought about an LBZ, until I drove an L5P. It's an awesome truck stock, but just not enough for me long term. Ultimately I found a 15.5' and...

The yellow's don't last too long, but they do stop good. I was getting 30-40k miles out of them. My orange ones lasted 60k miles and probably had 10-20k left. Both are front pad life.

When it happened was it limited to 2k RPM's or was it stuck in 3rd? That will at least help figure out if it's a fuel limp vs trans limp.

I think at this point I'm just going to accept it as normal until I find something that clearly states otherwise.

Even at 13.2 I can't get it to change no matter what accessories I turn on.

A good read for sure, but my truck doesn't follow that pattern too well. It doesn't change in tow/haul or when the head lights are one.

The voltage measures the same at both batteries and on the alternator post. The strangest part of all this is that after resetting the system, it seems to function normally for a few drive cycles.

Does anyone know what controls the charging voltage? The alternator seems to have the capacity to charge at a higher voltage, but is restricted for some reason.

13.2v Charging Too Low?
