Go to autozone.com. Register for free, giving make, model, year, and engine size. A pretty fair amount of repair help and some wiring diagrams will be found there under "repair guides". You may have to look elsewhere for complete wiring diagrams, but check there first-it would have starting and ignition circuits, probably a complete engine wiring diagram.

SOURCE: replaced alternator on 1985 Ford Bonco 4X4 302

turn your vehicle on, disconnect the battery, both terminals(while truck is still on) if it dies on you, then either the alternator is bad or wiring is wrong. if it stays on, then you may have a bad battery or voltage regulator. Check the voltage on the battery before you turn it on(should be from 11.5v-12v), when you turn it on if the alternator if working properly you should have around 13v-14v.

SOURCE: nEED TO REPLACE THE GROUND WIRE TO THE STARTER ON

The ground wire to the starter is either the webbed fine copper wire or ground cable that is directly connected to the car chassis.and the starter motor.
I believe you can see this as you open the hood of
your car. Of course, you know where your starter is located. There are two cables going to your starter. One cable comes from battery (B+), while the other goes to the chassis. You don't need a diagram to do it. Check and e-mail to us for your comments,.

SOURCE: My 1999 Ford F250 Light Duty Truck has a corroded

the ground cable is just that. as long as it connects from the battery to the engine and another cable from the engine to body or the battery to the body, thats OK.. Now the 2 positive cables goes from battery to the starter solenoid on the fender and another from the battery to the starter itself. there is a red wire (smaller) that goes from the solenoid to the stater .....there is a fusible link at the starter solenoid, make sure that the solenoid has power. if no power ..then the fuse links may be burned out. if you connect battery power to the small terminal on the solenoid the starter should spin the engine over IF all other wires are ok.

84 camaro good battery and alt so the part store says but after one start battery is dead have all new wires ?


Battery is only used to start engine.
after charging battery, start car. remove Negative cable, if car dies, wiring to alternator is faulty.

if continues to run, shut off car and all accessories. install ammeter between Neg. cable and battery, if it shows a draw, pull fuses one by one to find circuit with draw while car is off.

check ignition module, you may have fried it, if motor turns over the solenoid is o.k. -- your probably not getting any fire to the plugs, check to see if you are getting any spark at plugs

My car just clicks when i try to start it new batt & alt


The starter solenoid may be faulty. The following procedure explains how to inspect and test the solenoid.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Inspect the starter and solenoid for corrosion or looses connections.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Remove the starter relay from the PDC. Connect a remote starter switch or a jumper wire between the battery positive post and terminals 87 of the starter relay connector.
  5. If the engine cranks, the starter and solenoid are OK.
  6. If the engine does not crank, or the solenoid chatters, check the wiring and connectors from the relay to the solenoid for loose or corroded connections. Particularly the starter terminals.
  7. Repeat the test. If the engine still fails to crank properly, trouble is within the starter or solenoid.

03 intrepid not charging new alt pcm battery all connections good .power up field wire charges ok?


A good multi meter would do you some justice it sounds like , from new components and statement sounds like a missing ground , if the motor has been swapped out check all the fram to ground connections as well as any moter mount ground bridges , a charging system is rather simple (make a complete circuit) , wire harnesses make this a chore to trace down but provides a factory working condition ,. To just trouble shoot charging is done with the field wire to batt pos , and earth (ground) to alternator case . good luck!

I got 04 ford focus good battery alternator but no charge also i check fuse box next t the battery and the other inside the car everything is good but my alternator still dont charge


1) check 10A fuse in the batt. juction box (eng. comp.) hot at all times.
2) check the large red battery wire to the alt. for good conn.
3) make sure the alt. is grounded properly
4) gray wire sent from the alt. to the PCM
5) blue wire sent from the PCM to the regulator (alt.)
6) small red wire power frorm the 10A fuse
if all checks out and still not charge replace the alt.

Need wiring diagram for my 84 f250 problem....... no power when key turned on. no horn, headlights dont work...nothing... power at battery... power to alt from selinoid..power from solenoid to computer box...


your best bet is to purchase a Haynes manual it will have an in-depth wiring diagram for your truck. does any of your 12 volt items work? interior lights, lighter? Sounds more like a bad negative ground for your internal wiring harness or your fuse box itself

Installed a new alt- not getting any power to the battery,where does the cable go from the alt? where is the voltage regulator?


The "Batt" wire probably goes to the starter solenoid or starter relay. The wire is most likely corroded off or it's making a poor connection. Some vehicle route the power directly to the battery, look for a fuseable link in the wire. Use a test light too see if you have power on both sides of the fuseable link. There should be power at the "Batt" terminal of the Alt at all times, if not start tracing the wire back to the battery. The voltage regulator is built into the Alt. Hopefully this helps.

1989 Ford F250 pickup- amp meter reads backwards


If you had a dead short when connecting the neg. battery cable, the battery was being installed backwards or you had grounded the alternator + lead somhow.

I suspect whnen you installed the battery, you have burnt all of the diodes out in the alternator and the AMP meter is showing no charge. The AMP meter also could have taken a beating in the reversal.

Check the battery in in correctly first. If not reinstall or get the correct battery. Then check the battery voltage with the engine running. If less then 13.2. Replace the alternator again.

Good Luck
