What are the 4 wires going to my 1996 4.0 ltr ranger altenator

I have the power wire to the starter and the main connector harness that has 3 wires and then i have a 4th wire by itself and it is white with a black stripe. What does the wire go to. The used alternator I put in doesn't have a connection for this wire. Where else can I hook this wire so everything is working? Could this be a wire i read about called the exciter? If so can I hook it up to another power source or how should i proceed?

SOURCE: 93 Buick LeSabre. Battery not charging

use a volt meter while the car is running to check the main wire or large red wire coming off the back of the alternator it should read a steady 14 volts, the volt meter must be set at dc 10 amp settings, ground the black wire to ground or a metal surface some where on the car and touch the red probe wire on the volt meter to the main terminal of the alternator as i said it should read a constant 14 volts if it doesn't the alternator is bad.

Alternator wiring harness


An alternator can run on two wires, the thick wire is the supply to charge the battery, direct to positive, via fuse box or starter supply. The thin wire possibly blue on Fords, is the energiser wire from the dash charge light, without this connected the alternator will not charge. If on the new pigtail two wires are thick (30amp) you can ignore one, some vehicles double up on the charge supply wire.

I have got the starter diconnected from my 2005 5.7 jeep gc but I cant get it out to replace it


1. Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable.
2. Raise and support vehicle.
3. Note: If equipped with 4WD and certain transmissions, a support bracket is used between front axle and side of transmission. Remove 2 support bracket bolts at transmission. Pry support bracket slightly to gain access to lower starter mounting bolt.
4. Remove two mounting bolts (2).
5. Move starter motor towards front of vehicle far enough for nose of starter pinion housing to clear housing. Always support starter motor (1) during this process, do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
6. Tilt nose downwards and lower starter motor far enough to access and remove nut that secures battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet to solenoid battery terminal stud. Do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
7. Remove battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet from solenoid battery terminal stud.
8. Disconnect battery positive cable wire harness connector from solenoid terminal connector receptacle.
9. Remove starter motor.

Need a wiring diagram/picture for the start solenoid on a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2L automatic. There are 2 fusible links, the positive battery cable and two other wires. 4 wirese come out of the harness...


There should be one wire with a small eyelet connector on it, this is the starter field wire from the ignition switch and it should be connected to the small terminal on the starter solenoid marked "S" (this wire is usually purple, but it can also be red or pink)

All of the other wires to the starter including any fusible links, will have a larger eyelet connector on them, and they will all connect together with the battery cable, to the large upper terminal on the starter solenoid, sometimes marked "BAT".

I got a 86 trans am and i just put a new wiring harness on it because the old one was chopped up from previous owners but i got it all hooked up and my keyswitch engages power on the guages and all my park...


Hi,
Just check with a multimeter at the starter solenoid wire when you turn the key to the start position.
If you have no voltage present then trace the color of the wire at the starter and see if it is the same at the main harness connector. if it is then see if the color from the other side of the main harness connector is the same up to the ignition switch. Also check to see if there is a rely in the starter circut which may not be connected up.
You can also work it back the other way from the ignition key start position see if there is voltage, and trace the wiring from there. hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Starter wiring messed up need help


there should be a large battery cable red going to the large terminal of the solenoid, another thin wire going to the flat blade connector which should go to the starter switch, The way to test the wires to find out which one is the ignition switch wire is to get someone to sit in the car and turn the ignition key as if to start it and you can use a simple test light to see which one goes on and off as the ignition switch is turned on and off.
There should be another wire that connects to the same terminal as the battery cable which goes to the altenator, about twice the size as the small wire is. If there are any more wires I am not sure where they will go to.
Hope that works for you

My 1996 honda accord was in a front end accident about 3 months ago. I had problems starting it so my dad removed the SRS fuse and it ran. Now it is having the same problem without the SRS fuse installed....


the fuel pump positive wire must have been cut in the accident and is shorted to sheet metal in the wire harness, look around the area's of damage for a damaged wirng harness.

Altenator is not charging the battery


sir , the altenator has 3 wires at the connector correct ? a white/red , a green/white and a black , the white/red wire is involved with a 10 amp fuse to do with the charging meter / gauge , the fuse located behind left side of dash .. the green/white wire is is involved with 2 fuses , a 10 amp ECU fuse and a 25 amp Main fuse located at left rear of engine compartment main box , and the black wire is involved with a main 80 amp fuse at the main box also . both of these 2 wires end up at the positive side of the battery , please verify all these fuses are good . if they are indeed good , then open wiring would be next step verify continuity on black and the white/green wires . i would post a link to diagram but autozone repair info site is down at this time . if ya need more help , please ask .

Replacing a starter and starter relay on a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder


Starter relay is located in a "fuse box" these rearly go out. Check your starter to make sure you are getting power to it when you turn your key. if so then worry about the relay or the Starter Solenoid.
