    The meter on the dash is faulty.

    11.7 is way too low. Means that the charging system is not working. It's either the alternator, voltage regulator or wiring. Should read between 13 and 15 volts at around 2000 rpm

    sounds to me like the alternator, if you have to buy one its not that expensive, or maybe the volt meter is not reading the voltage right... good luck.
