randomorbit3,
My Trooper is a 1997 and it does the very same voltage drop in the tech bulletin I posted earlier for the '93-'96. Should I be concerned at all because it is a 1997? Not many people seem to know much about these guys.
Thanks

Trooper012,
As far as I am concerned, NO!!! As long as the voltage gauge goes back up once you ease back on the gas pedal. If that is not the case then I would be upset. I log it into my brain as a Isuzu thing. hahahahahaha Supposed to be a joke.

Let me know if this puts you at ease

Thumbs up

randomorbit3,
That is great news. The voltage does go back up as soon as I ease of the gas. Thanks a lot for the follow up response!!!

I thought you might like to know the reason they did this was to give the old girl a wee bit more pep under hard acceleration. Trust me it is much worse in the older Troopers, like my 1991 Trooper with the 2.6L 4 cyl. engine. Thank the Lord it has the 5 speed and not a automatic for I might have to let a semi pull out first

Happy I was able to put you at ease.

Default My solution

My solution to the way the vehicle operates is to turn on the lights when I want the alternator to keep operating.

You really do not need to keep the lights on. The ONLY time it should drop is under HARD acceleration and after that it should go back to charging. You will find that using the heat or a/c will do the same thing. Or just leave it alone as it IS working the way it should. What you need to know is that even though you do not see the gauge showing a charge it is still charging because you have a volt meter instead of a amp gauge.

Any other questions let me know and I will try to help. Or just say HOWDY from time to time

yes ... and there is an after market RPM limiter that can be istalld to protect the older 95 and older 3.2 dhoc from over rev during free neutral drop conditions.

johnny5ive,
You know I NEVER heard of a REV limiter being used for neutral drops. I always thought they were for saving a engine on hi RPM shifts with a stick tranny. I think I might have to take another tranny course for I must have missed something. Only jerks will neutral drop a automatic and not even be thinking of the damage being done to the tranny, the drive line and the rear. I am amazed someone would show their intelligence this way on a forum.

Well they are right about one thing. After a while of doing hole drops the vehicle will not be on the road and we ALL will feel MUCH safer out there. I can not wait to see what their response will be to my comment
