I can't believe that you have been supplied a relay for a high output alternator.A 40/60 relay can handle up to 60 amps,a high output alternator would blow that up as soon it has it work hard.The relay has to be for the field terminal which will never draw more than 5 amps.I would say that you are being scammed by someone,can't be sure,but i would be on guard.

How to replace breakline 1998 Nissan frontier

You have two choices, either replace the whole line, or just cut the bad part out with a tubing cutter, then purchase a pre-made line the same size & length that you cut out, you can take the old line to the auto store & match it. While your there, you also need to couplers, which are female on both ends and 2 male connectors that will fit into the couplers you just bought.. Now you'll also need a double flaring tool (cheap at Harbor Freight).The brake line that's still on the car, you want to dry & either emery cloth or steel wool the ends where you made the cuts. Now slide 1 male connector on each side, then double flare each end of the tubing. once that's done you can put your new female couplers on each end, then connect the new length of tubing you just purchased to both couplers , the new tubing already has new male connectors , and is already flared for you. Not a hard job if you have the flaring tool. good luck. Don't forget to bleed the system when done.

a SMALL blade screwdriver (1/8" or smaller), "gently" inserted between the male and female jacket of the plug connector, where the catch protruding from the male connector through the female jacket. Gently rock the connector back and forth working the catch, (from the male connector) out of the slots, (of the female connector) of the female jacket, on both sides.It can be a little tricky the first couple times you try this, but you will get it... Good Luck.

Tail light electrical connectors are fried, i need to replace the connectors cant find them online? help

Call your local junkyards to see if any of them have any Silhouettes in their inventory with tail lights still installed. If they do, remove the tail light that you need, disconnect the connector and examine the connector (both Male AND Female sides) to make sure it's not fried too. On mine, both the male and female pins connected to the green(Ground) wire in the vehicle harness that was corroded.

If it looks good, install the connector and cut the wiring on the vehicle side a foot back from the connector and remove the complete tail light assembly with the connector.

The Female connector is built into top of the Lamp Holder Assembly and since both pins are corroded, the Lamp Holder must be replaced at the same time as the harness side.

Cut the damaged part out of your car leaving enough of your harness to splice the wires together. I soldered mine and covered them each with shrink fit tubing at the joint then wrapped all the junctions with electrician's tape for protection and some water integrity??

By the way, the complete Tail Light Assembly cost me $40.00 and I wound up with a spare left lens!

Hope this helps.

For fuel pump relay which is hot and negative to jump wire to fuel pump

I had a burnt connector (twice) between the relay in the trunk and the fuel pump. Had to bypass the ground lead and take it straight to ground. Then the battery side burnt out and had to replace both connectors with male/female spade connectors.

No power in fuse panel (5a access/hazard) or brake lights

If there is no power in a fuse panel for ANY of the fuses, suspect the wire harness bulkhead connector. The harness comes into the firewall from the engine compartment, as a Male connector. Under the dash the bulkhead connector is a Female socket.

There are individual socket holes for each one of the fuses, on the Female bulkhead connector. There are flat bladed pins for each fuse on the Male bulkhead connector.

Upon separating the Male bulkhead connector from the engine compartment, inspect the individual connections. You may see some that are burnt, or corroded. They may even be melted! (The machine screw heads are on the interior side. You have to remove them. There is a rope gasket made of a sticky substance, {Name escapes me at the moment}, that makes separating these connectors Fun! {?)

This could be the problem.
