Wiring problem and alternator

A bundle or wires that are in front of engine next to the power steering, hook that holds them broke and some wire were shreded on the pulley mostly the outside sheeting. no wires are cut, just lightly retape them to solve this problem. Just a few strands of a few wires only. Also this started when the altenator light is going on and off when it feel like it to.
One day it is okay no light on the next light is on and dash reacts flickering. Also my dash instrument flicker, tachometer, speedometer, fuel, tempurature gauge, milage couter turn on and off. also my interior lights go on and off. i rechecked the wire for cuts or unconnected wire all is fine, no wires are crossed. what could be the main problem. Please help. An other problem different topic heater fan motor only works on high what needs to get changed. thanks

Negative battery wire


Just about any large bolt bigger than 3/8 inch.
Usually one of the brackets on the front for the alternator or power steering pump. Make sure there is a ground strap between the engine and body too.

Where is the fuse located for the 12 volt power on the trailer plug connection. This is a 2500 HD with trailer package


Hi, the power terminal to the 7 way , is not hooked up from the factory. In order to hook this up, you must locate 2 wires under the hood. The 1st wire, is between the driver fender, and the fuse box. This wire is red , and taped up. Grab hold od this wire, and pull it out of the tape. It has an eyelet on the end of it. The next wire is below the steering column, same scenario, red wire, with an eyelet, pull this out of the tape, route both wires to the front of the fuse box (underhood), take the cover off of the fuse box, you will find 2 silver threaded dtuds on the front of the fuse panel. 1 larger than the other.route these 2 wires to these two studs, and secure with 2 metric nuts. You will have to get these. does not matter which wires go where, as both studs are battery power, and are both fused. the wires will only go on 1 way anyway. after the nuts are tightened, reinstall the cover, and you will have power at the 7 way. Good luck...

I have a 2000 Dodge grand caravan, and the battery won't charge while the car is running, it just keeps using the battery until its dead. We have replaced the computer, and had the alternator and battery...


Hello allyssiandra.
The green wire leading to the alternator is grounded by the computer to complete the field circuit.
The dark green/orange wire is power supply to the field circuit fed by the auto shutdown relay.
The large output wire out of the stator in the alternator should have battery voltage on it at all times. Test to verify this power at the alternator terminal. There is a fusible link in this feed wire that could have went open circuit.
To test the system manually ground the green wire with the engine running. This is called a full field test. This will put the alternator in full output. If it doesn't, apply positive battery power to the dark green/orange wire with the engine running. This bypasses the auto shut down relay.
Hook up wires at the alternator before starting the engine for safety sake.
Do this much and report back here to me and I will help with the next step in repair.

Where is the cam sensor located on a 93 dodge caravan 3.3


Chiltons just states it is located just above the timing chain cover...thanks for the great info...here is where it is and how I got it out.
First, and easiest, mark and disconnect the spark plug wires from the ignition coil; tuck out of the way. Next, with a 10mm socket, remove the coil pack (4 bolts); disconnecting the electrical connection located on the bottom.
Now, as you look down through the bracketry that holds the power steering fluid and the wires which are bundled with the ignition coil wire, you will see another 10mm nut bolted in horizontally It is holding the cam sensor. Keep looking it is there!

Alternator belt routing — all except VR6, with power steering, no A/C


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wiring from the alternator. If necessary, mark the wires with tape or other means to ensure they are connected properly upon installation.
  3. Loosen the belt tension, and remove the drive belt from the alternator. On VR6 (AAA) engines only, remove the belt tensioner from the cylinder head.
  4. Remove the alternator adjustment bolt, followed by the pivot bolts.
  5. Carefully lift the alternator from the bracket. To install:
  6. Hold the alternator in position on the mounting bracket, and install the pivot bolt. On later engines with automatic belt tensioners, install the upper mounting bolt.
  7. Install (but do not tighten) the alternator adjustment bolt (earlier models only).
  8. Place the alternator drive belt on the pulley.
  9. Adjust belt tension and tighten the mounting and adjustment bolts as necessary.
  10. Connect the wiring to the alternator. If tape was used to identify the wires, make sure it is removed once the wires are connected.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable.

Trouble starting


It could be a power problem or a bad wire splice feeding power to the engine computer. The computer isn't getting enough current to run the injectors or spark until the alternator kicks in. Just an idea....
On mine, it was a splice located next to the battery inside a bundle of wires.
