  • Wire the "#1" terminal to the ignition wire from the key switch. This connection is responsible for making sure the alternator only engages when the car is powered on.
  • Wire the "#2" terminal to the positive battery line. This connection will insure the alternator only engages when the proper battery voltage is reached.

    4 wheeldrive dose not engage on my 1989 1/2 ton chevy,i have changed front actuator and the switch on top of the transfer and neither one made a diffrence

    Check the wiring, look for abrasions where wiring meets the frame, it may take a bit of searching to locate the problem. The wire doesn't necessarily need to be broken to not work, just shorted.

    I have a 1989 chevy blazer & the key will not come out of the igniation & the igniation will not turn.

    Lock is broke there should be a small pin hole at the back of the lock take a piece of wire or a very small screw driver and push in real hard and jiggle the key. and you should be able to pull the lock.

    use a test light the wire from the battery should be hot all the time the wire that goes to the solenoid should be hot when the key is turned over to start and the wire going to the coil should be hot when the key is in run.
