Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
Battery checks good,12v at alternater. no power at battery junction block and nothing is working. no lights, horn,starter,etc.nothing.
ground wires that bolt to the back of the heads are showing to be grounds without being bolted up.
Well, here's an update. When I hooked up the alternator, I hooked it up wrong. There was one red wire and one black wire. I just assumed when hooking it back up that the black wire was ground so I hooked it up to ground. It wasn't. The black wire was positive. I don't know if the manufacturer color coded it wrong or if someone after changed the wiring color. I followed the black wire and found all the inline fuses everyone was talking about. He then decided to hook that up to positive and everything started working. So I guess lesson learned is even if it looks obvious how to hook it back up when taking it apart, to label every wire anyways as to where it went when hooking back up.

Check your neutral switch, its usually on drivers side on the back of stearing column .Its easy to reach and if you consult a mechanics service book, it will be alot easier to find and save you alot of frustration. Please rate this. Thanx.
