Question about 2004 Infiniti Q45
I just purchased this automobile and everything was working properly except that the alternator was bad. I purchased a new alternator and alternator plug. After putting the alternator, alternator plug and the wires behind it back together, when I go to connect the battery the negative post sparks and the 120 A fuse that goes to the negative hookup for the alternator (in the underhood fuse panel) blows. If the ground wire to the alternator is removed, there is no spark and also no use of electricaI anything inside the car. I cannot locate a haynes manual for this car and need assistance.I have spent a week trying to fix this problem ~ any suggestions??????
Sounds like you have reversed the wires going into the back of the alternator. Contact the dealer, or go in and have them show you which wire goes where.
