I was driving out of NYC last night when all of my electric accesories went south in the span of about 10 minutes. My SRS light and Washer Fluid light were the only lights that lit. I nursed the car off 287 on to 78 where the whole car took a crap. Had it towed etc.
I went to investigate this morning and it started right up, no noises, lights or problems. Figuring it was a battery, alternator, etc, I checked the charging system with a meter. 13.8 w/o accessories. 13.6 with. I still have a 225 mile ride south, and I'm going to get the charging system checked out as soon as I post this. Any thoughts from the experts. The car runs and drives fine right now...?

I have a 1990 2.6 w/ 70K

Get some long leads and leave the meter on and run it into the cabin so you can monitor the charging system as you drive down.
