The red and black wiring fell out of battery wiring and I need to know how to reattach it back on

If it is connected directly at the battery, Strip the wires enough to fit eyelit style wire terminals. The size of the eyelit depends on the guage of the wire and the size of the bolt on the terminals on the battery. Once you have crimped the eyelet terminal on the wires, slide the terminals over the battery terminal bolt and tighten. Make sure you have the you put the wires back on correct side of the battery.

Please check the following:
- Heavy current carrying wires between the two batteries. Any joint may be loose.
- Battery to engine ground thick wire.
- Battery to chassis ground wire.
- Battery to starter motor wire.
- Solenoid switch attached to the starter motor.
- Wash the battery terminals and posts with a mixture of Luke warm water and baking soda. (Immediately wash your hands with soap water)
- Spray wet type contact cleaner on all battery posts.
If the problem persists,
- Replace all the battery, starter and ground wires with slightly thicker wires.
- Service, repair or replace the starter motor assembly. The starter motor could also work fine being purchased from junk.

I am having problems with my 1988 ford desisel

the clicking you hear shouldn't happen untill the wait to start light goes off,what you should replace is the glow plug timer,located at the rear of the the manifold under a small vented black box,this needs to stay on for 20-25 seconds in order for the glow plugs to get hot enough for start up

Not getting current to battery,I replaced everything new, altenator regulator celnoid Battery and still will not charge battery

Hello, I'll try to give you a few ideas. Check whether your Armature and Field wires are in the right position. Then there are your plug-in wires at the Alternator connector. To generate a charge from your Alternator you need power going into the plug-in and that power comes from the Ignition switch.

If your Ignition switch is bad or if the power is not going to the Alternator because of wiring, then the Alternator will not put out current. I noticed the year of your truck is a 1981. Sometimes if the wiring has burned up, the last connection is the dash gauge. Sometimes the gauge will burn out. If you have an add on gauge and bought the truck as-is, the wiring to the gauge may have been done wrong and took out the Regulator and Alternator.

You can put on a decent gauge wire and bypass your gauge to see if the battery will get a charge. I don't have books that far back, check with an Autoparts about a fusible link for the charging system.

I hope my solution helps you.

My starter

the wires might be fried also, check them with a meter to see if the smaller wire has voltage without key in. if so, the wire might be shorting out to 12 volt wire or the ignition switch is bad.
