Why alternator don't charge on a 1979 ford thunderbird?

If you can use a new wire and they charge the battery then most likely you have a broken wire in the harness that runs between the alternator and the regulator.

Alternator wire diagram

I'm afraid not. The alternators as well as the trucks are wired differently.
The black yellow wire on both models goes to the fuse box, but on the 2005 model with the extra wire, the gray orange and brown white wires goe to the engine computer which acts as the voltage regulator. The 2003 computer would not have provisions for those circuits.

Fuse system 2004 ford expedition for charging system

Chances are the wiring harness is rubbing on the air conditioner line and has rubbed through and broke one of the wires. You'll probably see a burn mark on the metal AC line as well. At least that what happened to mine and I had the same problem. I used a **** connector and put the broken wire back together and presto no more alt light. I did replace the harness a few weeks later

1979 dodge d-150 truck .. The battery wont stay charged we have put new battery, wiring harness, voltage regulator, alternator and coil what else could be the problem

I can only guess here but clean your wires going into the bat terminals, also check for a light that may be stuck on when it is parkes such as trunk engine or glove compartment.. since you did all these things also check the alt/charge fuse

2000 sunfire loose sensor wire off the alternator wireing harness 2.2L, car when it starts runs for a wile then cuts off, the wire extends about 12 inches down from alternator. where to I do not know.

large cable wire should run to battery or starter smaller wire would be to gauge or exciter wire (voltage must be sent to alt. before it can begin charging) either way wire should run in to harness try a haynes manual found at auto zone $22.00 lock in chapter 12 for wiring schamitic find alt it will show color of wires coming from alt. wat they are for and where they should go

1979 Ford F 250 Electrical Problems

Youve probably tested the main wire for continuity and its good, but a major short can burn an inner section of wire and you can still get continuity, however because the conductors burnt it wont charge under load due to poor connection. Try changing the entire cable from the alternator to the battery or temporarily jump a piece of 8 gauge from the charging terminal of the alternator to the battery and see if that solves the problem
