Your hot wire was grounded when it sparked, it burned the fuse involving that circuit to protect from a short , just replace burnt fuse inside of fuse box.

first remove number 1 spark plug, this is the front first plug on the driver side.put your finger over the hole and have someone bump it over until you get compression blowing your finger off the hole tell them to stop. then look on your harmonic balancer and line up the notch on balancer to the wide gap on the pointer. when this is lined up your then on number one compression stroke.

SOURCE: The alternator is charging the

It sounds like the bearing is going out and when you connect it and disconnect it this places more stress when it is on thus cause it to scream .It still can work even tho it it screams but one day it will go out and you can get stuck broke down.FIX; I would take it to a qualified shop and have them replace it or you can replace it yourself just be careful to note where the wires go.Thank you for your questions

Have new battery,alternator, starter and battery still goes dead on my gmc 2003 safariif i the voltage on the battery its about 7 and then it dies completly

you have a SHORTED, CONDITION, you need to inspect all wires within this circuit, including all grounds. are all your connections right ? with engine running is your battery showing 12 to 14 volts, is your starter connected properly, reinspect all wiring in this cicuit, are your battery cables in good shape ? make sure no other wires are touching wires in this charging circuit . have a parts store check the charging circuit for you . have them check the battery, and the alternator, one dead cell in battery can cause your problem, also even a new alternator can be bad !!!

Battery Light still on

The new alternator is probably ok.
I would say you burned a fuseable link in the wiring harness.
The alternator has a fuse wire between it and the battery to protect it from overload.
Have someone check the wires coming out of the back of the alternator. The big wire should have battery voltage, the small wires energize the alternator when you start the engine.

I need a spark plug wire diagram for a 1985 gmc jimmy 350 engine

Most all Chev or GMC v8 engines use the firing order of 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. You have to find where #1 is on the distributor cap which is usually closest to #1 cylinder then looking toward the back of the engine go clock-wise to install the rest. Don't get too close to the headers. Plastic melts!

Ignition / start problem

Check the wire to your starter. Chect the battery connections. Check alternator connections. Clean them all and apply a little grease to each. Not so bad in central FL today either, supposed to be mid 60's.

My truck wont start the autnadior works butits as if batterty wont stay chargeed please help

Is the alternator putting out 13-14 volts when running, if it's below, then it won't be putting out enough to charge your battery, if it's above, then it's overcharging and killing your battery... you should also check the battery and if it's over 5 years old, it's recommended to be replaced...

  1. Check the wiring of the new radio installed as follows..
  2. Disconnect battery ground

  4. verify radio hot wire (normally red and thick) is connected to a power source that is off when the ignition key is in the "off" position.
  5. verify that the always hot wire is connect to a constant 12v power supply even with the ignition off.
  6. make sure the pwr antenna wire if not used is taped at the tip and not touching any metal.
  7. verify that all speaker wires are connect correctly and not shorted to ground.
  8. connect battery ground you may get a small spark if your courtesy lites work.
  9. start engine verify your battery is charging by disconnecting the battery ground cable while the engine is running, it should continue running if it don't, alternator maybe bad.
  10. If it continues running problem solved..

350 chevy engine won't start

My suggestions: Loosen slightly the alternator belt so that a slight slack is present .this will ensure starter is not unnecessarily LOADED and turns the engine fully for it to start .
