Trying to troubleshoot electrical issues on my 2004 V6. Voltage when running is fluctuating rapidly between around 14.13 and 14.24 (see attached gif). Is this a normal range or defective?

I'd say that's normal. What exactly is going on with the electrical? Is the battery light coming on at all?

Oh ok. Yeah that to me is just normal fluctuations for the alt.

I just had to replace my alt because it would randomly spike to 20+ volts. When it did this the battery light would come on but would return back to normal. I happen to leave the volt meter on for a longer amount of time than I would for a normal test and was finally able to catch it.

Anything in the 13-14 volts is normal.
