What wires are you changing? Normally you remove the positive battery cable.

Help... I have a 92 350 chevy truck that will not start. I have replace the ECM, coil, ignition mod., the fuel pump relay and the fuel pump. When i turn th Ignition switch on th fuel pump doesnt come on....


You said you jumped the wires for the pump? Was that at the pump relay?
If you have a voltmeter or test light, keep the jumper wire in place and check for voltage at the fuel tank connector. The pump wire will be gray. With relay out and jumpered there, you should have battery voltage at the fuel tank connector. The key doesn't even have to be on, cause the relay has voltage to it at all times. If you jumpered it right (terminals 87 and 30 on the relay), and no voltage at the tank connector, you have a broken fuel wire somewhere between the relay and the fuel tank.
If you do have voltage at the tank, but the pump still won't work, only two possibilities, a bad pump or the ground for the pump is lost. Check the pump ground first.

Jeep radio w/cd player


begin with the easy one. code is for battery disconnect.(if you had the battery disconnected while installing that will explain it) if you ground the antenna wire to the chassis does it still spark? Is it a power antenna? I'd make sure that somehow the clock and radio wiring is not reversed and that the radio is well grounded (you can add a ground from the case to the main dash rail if you need to. As with any used item, there is a possibility also that there is just something wrong with the radio, but I don't think that yet!

I disconnected my positive battery terminal to clean it. Once I reconnected the terminal, the 4-way flashers are on. Ther must be some reset function I'm unaware of. Any idea?


you can try to touch the neg and pos connectors together after disconnecting frm battery. this usually grounds out and resets most car computers if that is wat is causing the issues

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.
