We have a 2002 Allegro Motor Home. Work Horse Frame P32 with Chevrolet Vortec Engine and front suspension.
1. Sometimes, Turning the key on the dash lights etc. come on, the alternator charging gage goes to the center position. Then when turning the key further to start it is like everything goes to dead ground. The panel gages zero out and nothing. By repeating this it will start and the engine runs. However, the alternator-charging indicator stays in the same position like the battery never had a load.
2. The electric step was operating and ones again it will not go out. The step light comes on but the step doe not operate. When the engine started without the dead ground problem the step operated?
3. The headlights come on when starting and stay on. It seems that they cannot be turned off?
Are these all related to ?? Something in the steering column or ???
