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.

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.

Testimonial: "This was helpful, but I did not post that I had already performed this check."
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,.

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.

the top two wires dont matter a solenoid is just a switch when you send juice to the solenoid via the small wire it connects the two on the top
