    Im not clear what you trying to accomplish, to keep it original and problems free without cutting and slicing rigging any wires I would call around locate a junkyard and get the wire hardness from a used car before rigging any wires. keep it simple, that way you know what wires go where. no power wire from alternator should be running directly to solenoid. Starter/serenoid should not be connected straight to battery unless you have switch.

No trick to replacing wire...Use a wire of similar gauge (thickness) and just run it from the plug to the destination. Make sure the wire you are changing does not make any "side trips" somewhere inside its harness or you will need to attach new one at those points as well.

How to wire a altinator on a 1982 Ford motor home


Your voltage regulator will have four connectors on it, I, A, S, and F.
I stands for Ignition and goes to a keyed power source. A stands for Alternator and goes to the Battery terminal on the Alternator. S stands for Stater and goes to the Stater terminal on the Alternator. The F stands for Field and goes to the Field terminal on the Alternator. The Battery terminal on the Alternator will also have a fused wire going directly to the Battery along with the A wire from the Voltage Regulator.

My 96 bronco won't start. It turns over but just spins. At first it would die while driving, then not start for several minutes, now it won't start at all.


Check the alternator to see if it charges the battery. Likely you are draining your battery completely after every turn over. If there is no charge then your alternator or cabling is at fault.

Battery keeps dying, no headlights


Check to make sure the power lead from the alternator to the battery has a good connection. Sometimes the connectors get corroded, or the wire separates inside the insulation. You can check the wire for continuity with an Ohm meter...make sure to disconnect the wire at both ends when you use the Ohm meter.
Make sure the battery has a good clean ground. Make sure the alternator is grounded to the engine and the engine ground strap is intact and has clean grounds on both the engine and frame. Test the alternator with the engine running using a voltmeter across the battery. You should read 13.5 to 14.7 volts. If the alternator is not charging the battery will go dead under normal operation. If you don't get the correct charging voltage either your connections are bad or the alternator is bad.

Car dies after a short time of running. I took it into an autozone and they tested the battery and the alternator. the said the alternator is fine but the battery needs to be replaced. The car started up...


Sounds like the battery. If its not holding power it will cause the car to die. The alternator will charge the battery and keep power to the vehicle, but the battery is also apart of the process.

Replace the battery and check the battery cables for corrosion. At autozone or wherever you go to get a new battery get some terminal grease/protector for your battery. Its like .99 for a packet and will help keep your connections to the battery from corrosion.

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

1994 ford tempo will not start only clicks


Hook your voltage tester to the battery, then have a helper try to start the car. Watch the voltage when you hear the click. If it drops much under 12v then odds are the battery is no good. Have it load tested at your local autoparts store

Truck keeps dying. seems like alternator is going bad.


Check the Belt Tensioner. If the Belt Tensioner is not keeping the Belt Tight it will cause all of these Problems. Get the Other Stuff checked out also to be sure.
