  • EVAP System Leak Detection Reference Orifice High Flow Vehicle battery was charged fully, then sat overnight. Parasitic drain measures 13-20mA, in normal range. Battery tests good, but engine cranked a little slow in the AM. Charging voltage at battery is a little low, at 12.9V at idle with no loads on. Voltage at alternator is >14V. Confirmed headlights and dome lights flicker at idle, worse with more electrical loads on (heated seats, rear defroster). Checked voltage drop from alternator to positive battery terminal, found okay @ 100mv. Voltage drop from engine block to negative battery terminal fluctuates between 700-1800mV, and is over 2.5 volts when cranking, Trace to bad ground connection at the negative cable to body connection. Retaining nut slightly loose, and upon removal found underside of nut and terminal pitted and arced. Also terminal is very hot on thermal camera at idle. File the pitting off the nut, terminal and stud on the body and reassemble with a lock washer. Full load voltage drop is now a steady 250mV with all loads on, and charging voltage at battery is 14.1. Cranking speed now normal and lights not flickering. Most of the fault codes pulled at initial scan are due to low voltage. There are two EVAP system faults that need to be diagnosed separately if customer desires.
