Having hard starts when engine is warm, dimming lights with noticeable battery dips on gage.

Asked by Feb 18, 2017 at 12:23 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet S-10

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have had fuel pump, alternator, junction box and regulator changed. Worked
fine for awhile. Lights started dimming again and the hard starts began again
but only when engine was warm.

Sounds like a main power or grounding issues, when were the cables checked for voltage drops?

Had it in the shop last summer when the problem first surfaced.
