Hi Heath, If the cable is attached to the positive side of the battery, it will attach to the B+ on the alternator. If it is the negative it will be an earth connection. Regards John

SOURCE: Fusible link wire gets really hot.

Removing the two smaller wires stops the exciter current to the alt which stops it charging.
Usually if a wire is getting hot its because:
A: Current overload..
B: Corrosion in wire restricting current.
C: Corroded terminal.

1993 ford thunderbird 3.8l the alternator smoked so I changed It made tests and the alternator is not charging I checked the alternator and there is voltage comming out what can be my problem

When the alternator went out, it may have also smoked your fusible link that the output wire is on. There are 2 or 3 fusible links on the starter relay on the passenger side fender. This is where they catch battery power from the positive cable there, or in the case of the alternator fusible link, this is where the output wire connects to battery for recharging it. The gray colored link I believe is the one on the output wire from the alternator. When a fuse link blows, the insulation on the wire may bubble or get rough spots. You cut the old one out and splice in a new fuse link. Make a soldered joint for best practice. Or just replace the whole wire and fuse link, from alternator to starter relay, from a donor car, a salvage hunt.

Autozone told me that my wiring for my 93 buick regal was messed up on my alternator I thought my starter was killng the battery so I had them test it but that's when they said its the wiring to your...

Does your battery have a large spark when you connect or disconnect it? A small spark may appear. A large spark would be a large drain.
There should be a wire from the starter or a junction block that goes to the plug on the alternator. It is a voltage sensing wire. It is also a fusible link. If the wire is not melted away (thats how they work as a fuse) it may be corroded inside the white (or black) plastic connector.
Remove the plug from the alternator and check the larger wire on it for 12 volts.
The other end of the wire will go to either the starter or a junction block on the firewall or near the battery.
Look for these
Don't just look at them, give a little tug to see if they pull out of the bu-tt connector

And you can go to and they have free wire diagrams in the repair section.madmikers_13.jpg

1987 ford f150 4.9 has no power to the igntion key switch. Head lamps are working. will not crank over, even when the solonoid is jumped. There is no heater fan, no radio.

Hello! In the under hood fuse and relay panel...Looking left to right...In the second row are four fusible links...Pull and check with an ohm meter (if you have one)...Some are visible as to blown or not....If you find them to be OK, there is another fusible link (this one is 14 Ga. wire...Color is Green on the end that goes to the alternator and Red on the end from the battery...This fusible link is probably open...The Green wire is spliced to a Black/Orange And Yellow/White that connect to the alternator plug...If it tuns out that the above described fusible link (Red in Green out) is burnt open it is indicating that the cause of the failure is the alternator...Or the wiring to it...Send a comment as to which fusible link is open and I'll take it from there...

You may as well check the grounding from (-) battery post to bare metal on chassis (fender bolt), firewall and engine block...Set ohm meter on X10 or X100 and read between the above described locations....Must read close to zero ohms (dead short)...Send readings...The truck has some years on it and rusted or corroded ground straps are an issue...Guru...Saailer

Click on the link.
The diagram shows generator with internal voltage regulator and with external voltage regulator, at the moment, I don't know which one you have?
The bat terminal at the generator should be hot even with the key off, is it, use a test light. If no voltage either the fusible link is faulty or the wiring circuit to battery +. You can see fusible links in diagram.
Could be other issues, the generator probably needs excite voltage or it won't work. The excite voltage comes from charge indicator circuit. Does the charge lamp on the dash work?
