1993 2wd 5 speed

I've had a problem with my battery for the last two years. I've had my altenator tested and it is putting out about 14.5 volts but when it gets cold and i drive at night my battery gets so weak while driving that it wont even turn over my truck. I've tried to track down a short as a possibility but the only thing i found is that the room light fuse doesnt ohm out right...anyone know why that fuse is shaded white on the fuse chart?

How are your battery cables? I would take both cables completely off the truck, fill a 2 gallon bucket with white distilled vinegar, dump the cables in, let them sit for a few hours, take them out, THOROUGHLY RINSE with warm water, let them dry and reinstall.

Vinegar is an acid that will eat the corrosion off all the copper in your batt cables. I had to vinegar bath my pos connector and now it works WAY batter.

Use a wre brush on the smaller connection, like the alternator power cable.
