I took my wires out can i think i put them back wrong truck wont start now

Well take them out and try a different combination, if none of your combination's work I would take your truck to a mechanic who can run a diagnostic and make sure it's just your wires that aren't hooked up right.

My battery light came on the other day car shut down no power at all. k so got to work put battery charger on it and it started right up but battery light is staying on got home took off alternator got it...

Check your battery wires Arnie. Make sure the terminals and post are cleaned good. Make sure the ends are tight. Clamp them down to your wire endings real tight. Sometimes they come loose. The light might need taken off with a computer scan. But, it might be on because you have a bad connection. Check the wires real good. I am sure that is the problem Arnie. 4 thumbs up is greatly appreciated if you appreciate the reply. Arnie, don't hesitate to ask me a question. I am here to help you. Thanks for choosing FixYa and have a great evening Arnie. Thanks.

The starter won't start, i took it out brought it to Napa and they checked it out, they say there's no problem with it, it's only a year old, but the car won't start, the battery is fine, it just doesn't...

If it is not the ignition fuse, you have a bad connection or maybe a ground somewhere. Make sure that your battery terminals are cleaned and make sure all wires are connected and look for tears of some kind. Make sure that the wires that go to the starter are hooked up properly and make sure there is no loose wires or tears. All ground wires are black. Make sure all your grounds are grounded. I believe you have a bad connection or loose wire somewhere. That is about all it could be, I would check the main wire that goes from the hotside post down to the starter. Check that one closely. If the starter is not getting the power it should, good battery or not, it's not going to start. Best wishes.

Took the distributor out and cleaned it then put it back in and now the truck wont crank but tries to do so. need some tips please

Did you take out the ENTIRE Distributor or just the cap?

If you took out the entire Distributor, and put it back in, there is a possibility that you put it in backwards. The bottom of the Distributor has a 'notch' in it. If you turn it 180 degrees the wrong way, and put it back in, your truck will not start, because it is in effect 180 degrees out of alignment with the timing.

If you only took out the cap, refer to your owners manual (Hanes is best) for the plug wire placement in reference to the firing order, and make sure all the plug wires are in the correct locations. Also, make sure your plug wires are seated all the way down onto the plugs, and the cap is secured tightly onto the base of the Distributor.

Make sure your Coil Wires are also seated properly to the coil and the Distributor.

Clean the battery connections. Remove the battery connections, clean them and reinstall.

My 2004 Nissan Armada was running fine and then it just died. It will start but immediately dies and acts like it isn't getting any fuel. We took the gas tank off and checked the fuel filter which looks...

Sounds like the loose relay wires disconnected your fuel pump. Try just plugging those wires back in where the plugs match the sockets and the wires are the right length. Don't stretch or pull any wires to make them reach

No power from ignition coil

ignition control module must be tested but is most certainly at fault

Truck not firing properly front coil pack not firing at all.

if this truck has an o2 sensor i would replace that and also make sure the cat-converter is not plugged,this would give you your powerloss and egr code,next is your coil,this may be caused by the computer or your crank sensor,look at the tone ring that the crank sensor uses and make sure its not missing teeth or broken,also check all your fuses.

Wires came loose on 81 vette elect door locks when i took panel off need to know what order to put them back them nothing in chiltons? drivers side

I'm going to guess that's it's just a two wire hook up. There's only two ways to hook it up. Try it one way and if the door locks when you press lock on the switch it's on there right, otherwise just reverse the wires.
