Remove lamp cover from backup lamp assembly 2005 impala

Did you check the fuse , relay ? Backup Lamps
The B/U LAMP fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the switch terminal of the backup lamps relay. The DIC/RKE fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the backup lamps relay coil terminal. When you place the gear selector lever in the REVERSE position, the powertrain control module (PCM) sends a class 2 message to the body control module (BCM). When these conditions occur, the BCM energizes the reverse lamp relay control circuit, closing the switch contacts, the current flows from the reverse lamp relay switch to the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G302.

I need to replace the alternator. How difficult is it going to be. Am I going to have to move things out of the way to get to it or is it fairly accessible?

Hi, yes, this is a pretty big job but not really hard. You have to jack up the car and go in through the wheel well to get the alternator out. Fortunately, there are good instructions at, which I have pasted below. Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 2 through 11

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the serpentine drive belt.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  4. Remove the right front wheel from the vehicle.
  5. Remove the right wheel inner fender splash shield.
  6. If equipped, remove the alternator dust shield attaching bolt and unclip the shield from the alternator. When removing the dust shield, be careful not to damage the rubber boot over the battery's positive terminal.
  7. Disengage the alternator field wire connector.
  8. Remove the retaining nut and wire from the positive (B+) terminal on the back of the alternator, using alternator output stud wrench SA9401C or equivalent, as a back-up wrench to prevent the stud from rotating. If the positive terminal stud rotates, the plastic insulator will crack or break, causing alternator failure.
  9. Remove the upper and lower alternator attaching bolts.
  10. Remove the alternator from the vehicle through the wheel well opening.

To install:
  1. Position the alternator in the vehicle and install the lower attaching bolt.
  2. Install the upper attaching bolt and tighten both bolts to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm).
  3. Engage the alternator field wire connector.
  4. Install the B+ terminal wire. The battery terminal wire should be placed on the back of the alternator between a 10 and 11 o'clock position.
  5. Be sure to use the alternator output stud wrench SA9401C to prevent the terminal stud from rotating, then tighten the alternator positive terminal nut to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Install the alternator dust shield and tighten the fastener bolt to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  7. Install the serpentine drive belt.
  8. Install the wheel well splash shield and right front wheel. Tighten the wheel lugs in a criss-cross pattern to 103 ft. lbs. (140 Nm).
  9. Remove the supports and lower the vehicle.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.

Where is the starter located on a 2002 Chevy Suburban? How do I replace it?

    Removing the Starter
  1. Step 1 Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Disconnect the battery by unscrewing the positive and negative terminals. This will prevent the risk of electrical shock.
  2. Step 2 Crawl under the passenger side of the truck and locate the starter. The starter is positioned between the transmission and the engine.
  3. Step 3 Unbolt the negative and positive wires from the starter with a socket wrench. Take the nut off the stud and pull the wires off the stud. Repeat the same for the positive wire.
  4. Step 4 Unscrew the two bolts holding the starter to the frame. Wiggle the starter to work it free from the flywheel.
    Installing the Starter
  5. Step 1 Position the new starter onto the frame. Tighten the bolts to secure the starter in place.
  6. Step 2 Unscrew the nut on the positive stud and push the positive wire down on the stud. Tighten the nut on the stud to secure the positive wires.
  7. Step 3 Unscrew the nut on the negative stud. Push the negative wire on the stud and tighten the nut to the stud to secure the wire.
  8. Step 4 Connect the battery cables to the terminals. Ensure the positive wire connects to the positive terminal. Ensure the negative wire connects to the negative terminal.
  9. Step 5 Start the truck to ensure the starter is functioning correctly. The starter should catch as soon as you turn the key and start the truck.

While putting electric window down engine stalled and all electrical went dead even dome light everything is completely dead electrical and batteries good

check the main fuses (bigger fuses in the engine compartment fuse block)
if they are ok, check the ground wire from the battery for defects and the terminals and connection to the chassis for corrotion

My inside light will not work on my 1999 dodge grand caravan and i need to know which fuse to replace so that htey will work again?

The fuse is located in the engine compartment buy the battery. Under the fuse box cover is the information you need to look for which fuse you should pay attention to, keep in mind that the fuse box in the engine compartment is know for corrosion so pay attention to the fuse box it self for corrosion. The fuse may be fine but the terminals that the fuse goes in to may be damaged by corrosion. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to help you get your van running with lights again.

Battery light on 1999 Ford Explorer

first, check battery voltage with engine off. It should be @ 12 1/2 volts.
With engine running, it should be @ 14 volts.
If yes, then check for a bad connection at alternator. Look closely at the terminals for corrosion.
There should be BK/DG wire supplying charging amperage to the battery. It does not go through a relay.
Check the mega fuse (175 amp) in the battery junction box (ride side or engine compartment I think). check connection 122 & 197 in same area. good luck

Alternator has high voltage and not chargeing battery

Look if You start the car and wile car running idling, disconnect the positive terminal on the battery and the engine stops, You need a New Alternator, look on the fuse box on the engine compartment for a fuse or a Relay with the alternator name, the main fuse is bolted to the fuse box, but I doubt is a fuse
