Question about 1990 Pontiac Sunbird
If the old alternator had a shorted diode, it would have blown the fuseable link which is located somewhere between the alternator +12 volt terminal and the starter solenoid--it should be hanging out of the wiring harness and look burned if open. Be sure to replace it with the correct part and use crimped '****' splices to reconnect. The battery should show over 13.5 volts when the alternator is providing charge. Hope this helps!
