Changed alternator still is not charging 1996 sunfire gt

The alternator output is regulated by the ECM. If you have a known good alternator you have either a wiring problem or a bad ECM (electronic control module).

I took the alternator off and found the red wire (hot wire) frm the alter. was broken off the other end... my quest. is where does the other end connect to. (is it connected to the starter?)when the guy...

Diodes do not reset them selfs,they blow,or connect a circuit both ways,instead of one way,if the alternator is bad replace it,then if it is the large wire on the alternator,it goes to a direct battery positive,hot all the time,like the battery,or the large cable going from the battery to the starter.

We put the key in the ignition switch cylinder and it wont turn. what could be the problem and how hard would it be to replace the ignition switch and cylinder on a 1996 pontiac sunfire

It could be numerous problems, the battery, alternator or starter, If its making a clicking sound its probably not the battery. But if its not making a sound at all then its more then likely the battery

96 pontiac sunfire wont start.....

Starter solenoid , or wire that leads to it.

Also , if standard transmission , may be the switch on clutch pedal is intermitant.

Engine won't turn over unless it thinks you have your foot on the clutch.
