Question about 1992 GMC Sierra K1500

1 Answer

Battery gets drained sporadically.

'94 k1500. the battery keeps getting drained and the problem seems to be from the black cylinder looking fusible link (makes a clicking noise when battery terminals are connected). i was wondering what that link supplies power to so that i can find where the short is.

    oh, no my alternator is connected directly to the battery. and i already changed it thinking that maybe the diode in the old one wasnt disconecting. the largest fusible link in my truck is connected to wires that join up with the main wiring harness and looks like they go into the firewall.

    no, my alternator is directly connected to my battery terminal. and its a new alternator; i thought the diodes were shot in the old one so i replaced it.

The large fusible link goes to the positve battery terminal on the back of the alternator,the alternator has a short,of course pull it and have it tested before replacing it.

After I get new alternator put in and battery keep on drain like it won't get volt from alternator to battery

With engine running, put a voltmeter across the battery terminals. You should see 13.5 to 16 volts. If not, the alternator is NOT charging the battery. Check for open / missing / blow fuse or fusible link in the wiring harness and tighten any loose connections.

What could be draining a batter on a 94 k1500 truck

one often overlooked drain is the air conditioning compressor magnetic clutch. i often turn off all devices and check for a drain by disconnecting the ground cable from the battery and bridging that circuit with a tester (milliamp). the tester will go to zero when you unplug the fuse for the circuit that is the culprit.

I have a 92 chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 and i cant get the slave cylinder to bleed. it has new master cylinder and slave cylinder. we spent 2 hours trying to bleed it. any suggestions are great!

I keep a Holley Black Electric fuel pump around for just such occasions. If you happen to have an in-line pump layin around just hook it up and let her rip. Always works for me.
