Question about 1993 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

Does the alternator on a 1993 Geo Prism need grounded?

I have a 93 geo prism. the battery light was on for 2 days. I replaced the battery and alternator, but the light is still on. The alternator wire coming from the battery that hooks to the side forks off and is just hanging. It look like it attached to something below the alternator but is now just hanging.

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.

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.

Remove alternator


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.
