Todd, it figures I find this post after I nuked my 3G.

I needed to dig into the Ammeter issue on my car. I just put my rebuilt 3G and made no attempt to think about the ammeter...Shocked

After a talk this week with Chuck, realizing...I need to pull my dash apart for a few other repairs. Time to fix that ammeter circuit.

While I am thinking about it. What about the fuseable links?

Hey Andy,
  Your fuseable links (if still in good shape) should be fine as is, since whatever is powered by the links aren't or shouldn't be pulling any more amperage than what they were pulling before or after your 3G installation. The 3G amperage issues deal with increasing the BAT thickness (lower gauge cable) from the alternator and the original ammeter shunt wiring(the bigger 10ga wire) restriction. Hope this helps

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.
