Electrical problems pp keeps shutting off
Ok so I have pp star gazer on my 01 super air. When playing my stereo loud or operating several accessories my perfect pass shuts on and off repeatedly very fast. I thought this could be due to it getting low voltage so yesterday I installed a 100 amp alternator to replace the factory 50 amp. This did nothing. My batteries are both set up independently with a Deka deep cycle running the ballast pumps, stereo and cd player. Also I have a interstate cranking batt running my motor, dash and perfect pass. In between is a voltage regulator. Everything seems to work fine until the pp starts kicking on and off. When it does this the voltage on the dash gauge jumps wildly. Any ideas? I mean I thought the old alternator wasn't making enough power but I have double the amps now and there is hardly any difference

a short in my navigation lighting caused mine to do similar, but would stop because the short would throw the breaker

Yea mine isn't throwing any breakers just turning on and off non stop

Mine did the same but it was due to a bad battery.The battery tested fine but I threw a new one in anyhow. Problem solved hasnt happened since.

Adam did u have the same dual battery setup as me?

It can be caused by where you tap into the +12v power.I was having the same problem when I would adjust the trim tab while PP is engaged.I called PP and they told me to make tthe +12v connection the frist connection coming from +12v on the ignition switch.I had mine connected to a +12v pole on the back of a gauge and due to voltage drops on the gauges the PP was not getting enough voltage.I switched it and it has worked fine since.

Are u talking about the ignition in the dash

wakebrdjay 08-22-2010 1:31 PM

Yes the switched +12v from back of key switch(ignition switch).
