Problems starting my 5.9 cummins
Just bought a new 5.9 l cummins freightliner. Batteries were weak from the get go so I sprung for two brand new 31D's. Started up when I installed real easy.
Drove it around that day, then had it sit over night. Next morning (day 2) took a little time but it eventually started.
Now this afternoon (day 3) electrical comes on, glow plugs work, but all I get is click, doesn't chug or anything. Cleaned all the terminals and tried again, but still same thing.
Voltometer is reading 12.4 on these brand new batteries....
My question is, could this be an alternator issue, or wiring problem?
Not sure what my next troubleshoot move is, or maybe it's the starter.
Any advice or tricks of the trade would be greatly appreciated.
