Why do something dangerous with no books.?
1: pull neg, battery lug, first and only.
2: pull all wires off Alt.
3: loosen all pivots bolts, (can be 3 )
4: drop the belt.
5: pull off all bolts on alt.
6: alt falls out.

tools?, 8mm to 21mm..
well a full set of open end box wrenches (metric) and 3/8" drive socket sets are the minimum to work any small car.
at the least, there are more, tools,
screw drivers
Pliers.

SOURCE: brake lights

The brake lite switch is most likely stuck on, it is on the arm that goes to the brake pedal, it will have at least 2 wires in the connector to the switch.

SOURCE: SPEEDOMETER CABLE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED

There is no cable on the 93 Prizms.  The problem is one of two things, either the "vehicle speed sensor" or the instrument cluster itself.   I also have a 93, and the speedometer started acting up a while ago. Sometimes it would register 0 then it would spike up to 70 and stay there at highway speeds then back to 0 upon slowing.  I replaced both items from the junk yard.  The speed sensor at an auto parts store will run about $160, and a new cluster will cost A LOT more at the dealer! I first replaced the speed sensor with no luck ($5.00 at the junkyard) the same thing happened 0 or 70.   I replaced the cluster today ($13.99 at the junkyard).  That was it! Problem solved.  The cluster is EASY to replace, remove the 2 screws from the trim piece and remove trim.  Next, remove the 4 screws that hold the cluster in place; 2 at the very top (don't remove the ones just above the cover glass) and two at the bottom.  Pull one side of the cluster out; there are 3 plugs; squeeze the center of the plugs to release the clip and wiggle them free.  Connect the replacement cluster, but before screwing it in, do a check to make sure all the panel lights work.  I had a few that were burned out, so I used the old cluster lights to replace them.   I would try replacing the cluster first.  Good luck!

Wiring diagram 93 geo tracker


all last post was error, under GEO Prism the car is really
a 93 tracker, not that is much more easy
make sure you know what engine you have first. 8valves or 16v
as every other page is different by those 2 factors. (engine type)
most are here. (to make car run and lamps work)
http://www.fixkick.com/schematics-run.html
yours is here.

page one here, may cover it.

http://www.fixkick.com/power-elect/95%20electrics/95powersistra1.pdf

the link is really just a large fuse. for A./C
did blow the main fuses. messing with battery or alternator or starter>?

on all cars ,before messing, pull the NEG battery lug first.
this prevents blowing out those big puppy fuses.

Need to know what fuse turns on the aircondition in geo prizm 1994


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
In the geo prism the fuse for the air conditioner is located in the passenger side behind a panel about 8 inches up from the floor just in front of the door you need to remove some screws to get the panels off and it is fairly hard to see ok it should be a 20 amp fuse
Best regards Michael

Does the alternator on a 1993 Geo Prism need grounded?


IF THE WIRE THAT IS HANGING HAS A TERMINAL ON IT WITH A LOOP, THEN LOOK ON THE ALTERNATOR FOR A STUD THAT MAY ACCOMODATE THE WIRE'S LOOP. IF THE WIRE HAS A PLUG THEN LOOK FOR A CONNECTION ON THE BOTTOM OF THE ALTERNATOR. IF NOTHING IS ON THE END OF THE WIRE, THEN HEAD FOR AN AUTO PARTS STORE WHERE THEY WILL HAVE THE APPROPRIATE PLUG OR WIRE CONNECTOR FOR YOUR VEHICLE. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING.
