    What the heck is going on with my tdub?

    Neutral light flickers when tdub is running in neutral. Then sometimes the N light just goes out. I Replaced neutral switch thats under the left side cover but no luck. Also if I give a little throttle in N....The relay in the right side cover witch I believe is the neutral relay goes freakin crazy. Neutral bulb is new...installed new neutral relay and still the same. I'm baffle! What else can I check? Getting 11.66 volts on battery at idle. Bad rectifier?
    Thanks for any things to look for...

    I would have the battery tested first. Take it to a auto parts store, most of them do it for free. Do that first.

    Sometimes when they are getting ready to go out, TW's will act strangely with weird light and signal problems, just like yours. Mine acted up just as my battery was going out and I know others have found the same thing. Rule 1, is always look at the battery first. Don't add water tonight, let them test it as it is. They need to load test it. Or if the battery acid is down to the plates but not farther, add distilled water and slow charge on your tender, re-install and try again. Sometimes, that's all they needed, sometimes not.

    Ok thanks! If i need a battery what brand should I go with? Should I go sealed gel type. I hate these water filled batteries....so hard to see the level through the plastic

    Yeah it is. I'm thinking, for a maintenance free battery online somewhere... around 60 bucks? You have a kicker added? If you do, I would probably go with a cheaper one, if not, it might be better to get one of the good ones. Either way is fine really, considering (usually) you get 3-5 years on any kind.

    im gonna take a wild guess maybe your neutral indicator lead has an issue. Possible grounding on the case? I would check it for breaks, but just a guess

    If the neutral light wont come on in N....I can bang on the kill switch with my hand and the N light will come on
    Or if the N light wont come on...and I jiggle the shifter...it will come on
    Im baffled!
