I want info on a isuzu 1996 mod for alternator wiring on alternator

I looked at info for rodeo 2.6L engine. You didn't state the model or engine size. Isuzu is the make. The battery and sense at the generator. You can see the splice for the two solid hot wires.

How do I replace a solonoid on a 1991 Dixon ZTR428 mower ? I took the old one off and dont remember what wires go where !

I am not sure how to send you my email address without telling the world what it is at the same time. Unlike a lot of other similar sites there is no private messaging facility. Pictures would have helped. You could send me your email and I will contact you privately but I think you can attach pictures to this section somehow.

The size of the ring terminals should provide a clue to which wire was fitted to the small terminal. There is likely to be only one fitted to that one and it will come from the starter switch. If the solenoid is screwed to something non-metallic and sometimes even if it is there will be a ground wire fitted to the frame or casing of the solenoid and was probably fitted under one of the mounting screws if a ground wire was fitted.
Some solenoids have four terminals (or five) and the fourth will be a small one matching the other small one. If it is that type it will be for the ground wire.

The thick wire from the battery and the wire from the alternator will go together on the same post but you say that is the only other wire that is as thick as the battery wire which seems unlikely. I would expect the wire from the solenoid to the starter to be that thick. The starter wire would be fitted to the other thick post and it would make little sense for there to be more than a single wire there.

I think you need to proceed carefully by identifying the wires by flashing them against the battery wire, with the battery connected. One wire will engage the starter, one or more wires will cause the lights, horn or other accessories to operate and another will probably cause the ignition or battery light to illuminate with the key turned on. The wire from the alternator will do nothing. If there is a ground wire the sound and sight of the spark when you flash the wires together will be very much sharper.

All the wires where something happens when connected to power will be connected together with the battery cable and the alternator cable to a large terminal. The starter cable would usually be alone on the other large terminal.

If you need further help the site will send me an email and I will see it later today and join you again.
Good luck!

Cig lighter fuse keeps blowing out

Research what else is on the circuit. In the old days when cars had more than one cigarret lighter I discovered that a penny fits in the socket perfectly and would cause a short.

The cigarette lighter wires are disconnected in my 1985 Toyota 2wd pickup. How can I tell which wires I need if there is small of wires hanging down behind the console?

Just get a test light and see which , if any of the wires hanging down have power to them. Run one with power to the lighter. Then you need a ground wire. The origional ones should have plugs on the end that fit the prong on the lighter.

You can try this.You can buy inexpensive system testers that have Yellow Red Green lights that will give you a better idea of your charging system.Strauss Stores,Auto Barn,Pep Boys have them.Some plug into gig lighter,some have clips to go on battery/connections.You have to get the motor started to use,so jump or charge the battery.I'm thinking loose connection,bad ground.Good Luck.

Have a 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra SL 4dr. VIN# 2G3AM5IN8K240

have you checked the glove box light? another way to tell where your short may be is to hook a voltage meter to the battery and notice a drain on the battery with the key off! then start pulling fuses to see when the drain stops and that will narrow down the possibilities of the problem... the drain should be easily located if its killing the battery overnight... help this helps
