I have a cheapo meter so can't measure AC all that great while DC voltage is present. Meter is showing 30 +/- a few volts AC(not sure if milli or not meter doesn't show a m), car running or not. I tested a spare battery and got 24 volts AC, I think this is because the meter is RMS and not tRMS?



I get a little tingle when I touch any ground. At first I thought it was a bad diode in the rectifier but it happens engine running or not so not sure whats up. I do have a power inverter wired straight to the battery but AC voltage shouldn't be able to back feed into the system right?

disconnect your inverter and see if it still happens, it should have diodes on the frontside of the inverter to prevent that

Before I disconnected the inverter I decided to test it again, I don't feel the zap anymore but my meter is still showing AC voltage (I'm sure its the meters fault on that thou).
