My Cherokee is having an intermittent problem with the charging system. The gen light will come on randomly when driving, but if i shut the vehicle off, then restart it, it will go off for a while, then eventually comes back on. The voltage guage reads extremely low. Like around 9 volts. It doesnt run rough or anything, so im almost thinking its not the alternator. Maybe a false reading? Im thinking the next step is to obviously see what the output voltage of the alternator is actually reading. If its still ok, what could the problem be? Voltage regulator possibly?
