I tried to measure the output of the podtronics with no luck. I measured the output on the black wire at 9+ volts at idle. When the throttle was turned up it actually went backwards toward zero. What gives? The podtronics is connected directly to the alternator. All new wires and connectors. the ground wire for the podtronics is connected directly to the battery. Yes, I am using the DC scale. The meter is connected to the black lead the other to ground.
