I had this car about 10 years ago. Loved it!

You must either clean or replace the battery cable. The corrosion is not allowing the charge to get to the battery.

Many parts houses carry a battery post/terminal cleaner that will aid in getting all of the crud away from the terminal.

You should be sure to remove all of the corrosion!

Good luck

Charging system 89 corvette

Is the charge indicator light lit on the insturment cluster ? (battery symbol ) Did you check for B+ voltage on the bigger wire on the back of the alternator ? The S terminal in the connector should have B+ voltage ,as well as the F an L terminals . No battery voltage at any of these will cause it not to work . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model an engine . Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on charging system . Then click the search button , then on the blue link . This diagram show all connection's on the alternator . All wire's should have B+ voltage , testing with a volt meter . Could have blown fuse , fusible link etc...

Where is the alternator fuse located on a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer

This charging system is computer controlled , the main heavy gage wire on the back of the alternator should have B+ voltage . The other end is at the battery positive terminal an has a fusible link , that's the only fuse ! Use a volt meter an test for B+ voltage before trying to replace the fusible link . The other two wires (in the connector ) go to the PCM engine computer !

My alternator is not charging.

if the drive belt is correctly fitted and tensioned the alternator should be charging....have it checked and, if necessary, replaced
I am assuming that all the charging components, such as the regulator, are integrated in the unit.
Also, have the specific gravity of the cells in your battery checked for health/condition...might be the battery is not holding a charge very well, could be a dead cell.

Just did a motor job, charged battery, car starts and runs fine, until battery dies, put two different alternators in it, still same problem,fusible links have resistance to, any ideas?

problem could be the positive battery bad need replacing also negative battery cable if both are old, make sure the small positive red 10 gauge wire that part of the positive battery cable is crimp have tight connection that wires run directly to starter fuse link.make sure you have the right amp alternator and check alternator fuse.

What guage wire for the black fusible link?

There should be 2 white wires coming from the alternator. There is a splice where it will go into 1 wire then into the fusible link. If the fusible link is not burned, simply match the gauge wire coming from it. You should never use anything smaller in diameter than 10 gauge wire for the charging system. If you want to replace the fusible link, you can run separate white wires from the alternator to the positive battery post with individual fuses or fusible links. I would recommend each wire have its own Maxi fuse holder with a fuse no less than 60 amps each.

While driving 1991 chevy cavalier gauges went wacko started cutting out lost charge in battery and died.Checked battery and alternator and both are fine.What should i check next?

Check all ground connectios first, make sure they are clean and tight, then check positive connections, use an ohm meter if possible. MAKE SURE YOU DIS-CONNECT THE BATTERY WHEN USING AN OHM METER.. Thanks Ray

My dad's '95 Buick Lesabre Custom does not want to keep the battery charging, I've cleaned all the terminals, checked all the grounds and still no luck. I've replaced the alternator and...

It most likely is a fusible link on the starter,connect a large wire(better to be larger than the one that is on there already)to the back of the alternator and go to the positive side of the battery,or to the starter hot post,where the battery positive cable connects to the starter,this will take care of the problem,no fusible link will be needed.The fusible link really hinders the charging capacity to the battery and running of the engine,cause it carries less amps in the smaller fusible link wire,this will solve the problem most likely.

Where do i trace my orange/blue wire to from alternator? i have new alternator and batteries, but won't charge. will charge if i jump orange/blue to positive post. Any good suggestions? Thanks Phil

The orange/light blue wire is connected to the red (positive) wire from the battery, through a fusible link (or two links depending on engine size) to pin #3 of the voltage regulator at the alternator. The fusible link will be in the harness so you may have to disassemble the harness. The fusible link is probably blown. This was probably caused by the defective alternator/regulator assembly.

According to my diagram, it appears to go from the red batt wire to a gray 12 gauge fusible link, into a brown 18 gauge link, then turns into the orange/light blue wire and to the alternator.

(A fusible link is a piece of wire that acts like a fuse and will burn out, opening the circuit when amperage above its rating. This protects the circuit and lessens the chance of fire).

Good luck, please ask if you need more info.
