88 s10 wiring problem

I have an 88 S 10. The positive cables coming from the battery go to the starter and the alternator(generator). The starter is connected correctly, but I was wondering if anyone could tell/show me whats inbetween the battery and the alternator. I have a wiring diagram, but I need more of a wiring map showing exactly how it comes from the battery to the alternator and all of the steps inbetween. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot

If you have a 4.3 liter the wire from the positive post on the battery should go to starter and to the post with 10mm nut on the back of the alternator with a 2nd wire that goes to your ignition coil. ignition coil wire should have a fusible link in the line.

Which wires go where on a 2003 3.4 liter Chevy


There are three posts on the starter solenoid. Two large ones, and one small one. One of the large ones has a braided wire going into the starter. leave this one alone. On the other large ones, you will connect the positive battery cable as well as the large red wire coming from the alternator. The small purple wire connects to the small post on the solenoid. Lastly, on the engine block pointing the opposite way (towards the drivers side) is another stud and you will connect the negative battery cable to it.
Make sure that none of the wires can touch the other posts coming out of the solenoid.

Check for loose cables from the battery to starter, the negative cable to ground, and wires on alternator, also check the alternator voltage with it running, should be between 14 and 15 volts.

Starter 99 s10


First disconnect the positive battery cable. You already have the bolts out. pull the starter back and down and it will drop out. do not let it hand from the wires. Disconnect the wires to the starter. Pay attention as to which wire comes off what terminal. They must be attached correctly or your starter will not crank after installation. Then the last thing you do will be to hook the battery up again.
