Question about Cars & Trucks
Which wires go to the brushes and which to the F & D terminals please.There are two wires connected to the iron plates and one of these has a connector on the end as if it fits onto a brush. Tghe other clearly comes through the body of the dynamo to connect with the F or D terminal.
Easy for a old timer like me ,the larger D terminal goes to the regulator and the smaller field terminal is the warning light ,now inside the main wire goes to one of the brushes and the other one goes to the casing ,to test hold casing on the NEG battery terminal and the pos one is connected to large connection and the motor will spin like a electric motor .To reverse polarity for a older + earth you reverse the connection casing to positive and the D and F connections joined together and connected to the NEG and spinm the motor ,positive earth dynamo ,simple isnt it

I am about to have the same problem with my 2002 ZX2. My shop called the Ford dealer and they can replace it for $450.00...
seems like an awful lot for a battery cable.

The connectors for towing wire harnesses on foresters are generally on the passenger side, below the rear taillight inside the cargo space. some require pulling up the foam block that is between the spare tire compartment and the taillight. Check where you replace the tailights from inside the car, if there isn't a matching connector hanging out there, check around the spare tire compartment, see if you can remove the carpeted foam block next to the compartment and find the plug under there.
