    Fired up the furd the other night, and noticed the battery light was on, and the gauge way down, around 10 pops. Cleaned up the battery, and the light went off, but the gauge is still way down. I don't idle rough if I turn on all my electrical, and I don't have a problem starting up. My headlights are pretty dim, and waver bright-to-dim.

    I have a new battery (3 months old), so I don't think that's it. I'll have it tested today to see what shows though.

    What could be wrong with it?
