SOURCE: wires pulled from starter need to know what goes where

It depends on the year model of the truck. Most have 3 wires. The large one to the battery, the second one feeds battery current to the wiring harness. And the third goes to the small bolt to activate the starter.

04 MGM, had rust in the battery terminals and it would not start after I cleaned started immediately now the Power locks, cabin, globe box, visors, and trunk lights dont work!all fuses OK Help!

If you had rust on battery terminals it is obvious that there is a lot more rust removing that has to be done. You neeed to go over every wire connection, fuse connection, etc and clean all out.

1988 Dodge d100 my lights are flickering

It's a battery or ground problem. You mean all of them, headlights, dash lights, or what? The flickering is often caused by a corroded or deteriorated ground point for the lights, less common is a hot wire connection that is loose or not contacted well. Your headlights and front park lamps and any side marker lamps, I think they would all have a common ground, or maybe each side has it's own ground up front there. I'll try to find a wiring diagram for what you need, in the meantime, take off first the negative of the battery and then the positive post (for safety, always remove the negative first and reconnect negative last), clean both battery posts and the end of cables or the clamps that go on the posts. Any corrosion, green or white colored, is not good, and can lead to serious resistance in the connection, and hinder the electrical system. Those connections must be clean and tight, remember positive hooked up first, then deal with the negative post. Your truck is old, subject to rust, better check all your ground connections. The original negative cable had a large ground to the engine block and a smaller wire ground to the body, somewhere grounded in front of the battery to the frame. If rust is an issue, you can always find a better ground point-to clean metal free of paint.

If you know all this and you know the battery connections are clean and tight, then look for the ground point for the flickering lights in question. If you have a voltmeter it is almost essential to the testing or checking of any electrical circuit.

Died while driving, cranks, but no spark.

one of the reasons that engine stop while being driven is a failed timing belt or chain
that affects the cam/crank position sensors and so there is no spark allowed
so run the fault codes first and check that the cam shaft is turning when it is cranking

96 caravan replaced both speed sensors on trans but still goes into limp mode after second gear. What could be wrong?

Joe: According to B33p3r on : "Before you do anything else...Disconnect your battery! Clean the + and the - posts and the cables that attach to them. Check the chassis ground that goes from your batteies - post to the frame(chassis) and clean that too. Shiny metal to shiny metal is good. Rust and corrosion is not your friend.
I've followed alot of posts here that have transmissions in limp mode problems. Crawl under the vehicle with a haynes book in hand if need be, and check the solenoid connections to the trans. Clean the grounds for the solenoid! Check the wires for the solenoid! Too many trannys are rebuilt or replaced for big bucks because of a loose wire that was inadvertantly repaired during reinstall or a ground wire that was rusted.
get yourself an electrical diagram for your vehicle( and learn how to read it and save yourself alot of money. These diagrams tell you where the grounds are for all the components. Clean them. If you can't decipher the diagrams, copy and paste them into word and email it to me and I'll be happy to help. I hate to see people spend big bucks for parts swapping when the real problem is a loose or bad connection. "Never under estimate the value of a good visual inspection".
Remember all the battery voltage travels out the -(neg) post of your battery, through the frame(chassis), into the load(motor, light, coil of a relay, or switch, through a fuse, and back to you battery +. (pos) post."

My truck back fire on me is 1994 chevy 4.3 vortec 1500?

Most likely causes if it crops up after an engine has been running ok.
1. Rust contamination in the distributor around the reluctor magnetic element for the trigger. fix: clean out all rust build up. The rust is magnetic due to iron content and it is conductive to the spark will result in cross over to a lower voltage cylinder namely the intake stroke as it is the lowest pressure, therefore the lowest spark voltage requirement.

2, Moisture or dirt in the distributor cap. Result is the same type of spark crossover as the rust build up.

3. breakdown of spark plug wire insulation causing spark crossover in wire loom. Fix new wires

Throttle surges on its own. Temperature gage goes hay-wire. Was diagnosed as charging system. alternator changed. Still same problem

This sounds like a grounding issue. Check the grounds to make sure they are clean and rust free. A loose battery cable can cause issues like this as well.
