Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

SOURCE: How do you check if altenator is charging battery,

Most vehicles if you get the car running and unhook the positive battery cable it will stay running that is because it is running off the alternator. if it dies like your talking about I would most definitely say your alternator needs to be replaced. Most likely when you jumped your father in laws pick up there was a bad ground somewhere and your alternator got a surge of electricity and it fried it. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Changed solenoid on passengers side

Sounds like something isn't wired right. Is solenoid staying on after start? Take positive cable loose from starter and listen to solenoid when you turn key to start and then release--does the solenoid click off, or does it not click off until you turn the key off? If the latter, there is a feedback wire from the starter post to the solenoid start terminal.
Also sounds like alternator is dead or has internal short. I would take the alt wires loose until you get the starter problem fixed. Then maybe take that alternator to be tested.
If this is not the problem, can you start over for me and tell me why you changed the solenoid, etc.?

SOURCE: battery keeps dying

well if the battery is good when you leave it it must have a voltage draw you have to take off one of the leads off the battery and put a inline amp meter to see how much draw..then you use an amp meter a light or buzzer and you pull fuses till the amps go down the light goes out or the buzzer stops depending on what you used.. then you go from there ..your going to need a schematic of the electrical system to see exactly what is off that fuse...or leave it out if you can live without it..interior lights ect

Changed altenator but battery keeps dying electric windows reverse lights a/c wont work


Bring the battery to autozone/advance/o'reilly for a free check to see if it is good. Also check that your starter is okay. Lastly, bring in your alternator because you may have bought a faulty one.

Bought a 1997 mercury sable today, guy said it needed a starter, charged dead battery and replaced starter. It fired right up, was driving it home it died, oil light, battery light, and check engine light...


Try checking the altenator. If the starter and battery were gimpy, the altenator may have a blown regulator too!. It sounds like there is a short in the system causing this problem. Most likely the altenator or component in the charging loop. WF

Sounds like either the voltage regulator or altenator is bad. Most part stores will test altenator, battery, and starter for free in the vehicle or out. Double check relays and cable connections

1992 prelude si - battery/alternator prob?


if you can charge the battery and drive it for a while then sounds like the altenator has failed and is not re-charging the battery, good way to test is to charge the battery, start the car and turn the light on, if everything is dimm or the motor dies there is little to no charge voltage, and will require altenator work

Altenator Not working Well


were talking about the big fat wire right? runs to the starter where the positive battery cable connects. Be sure the connections are clean and shiny bright on that cable and the battery connections and the starter connections. Make sure where the alternator bolts to the engine theres no corrosion and the bolts themselves are clean too, thats the ground for the alternator. Check the ground cable on the battery where it bolts to the body and or the engine too.

Need to hook up the altenator. thick wire from altenator is loose and i don't know where it connects to.


It sounds like you have answered your own question here...? the thick wire from the alternator connecting to the starter terminal feeds electricity back to the battery though the starter cable when you are running... if you have a manual you can see for yourself in the wiring charts. Hope this helps...
