Carefully disconnect the alternator completely, now reconnect the battery, now one by one reconnect the alternator carefully first the connector check is fuse is blown, now the big wire that charges the battery if the fuse blown when the alternator was disconnected, the problem is in the wires, an accident, a mice, a recent engine job.
The fuse blown when the terminals to alternator are connected the problem is the alternator.

When I connect the battery the blinkers come on constantly glowing, nothing else works, check the fuses, the alternator fuse is blown, replace that, connect the battery fuse blows again. 2007 solara.


Bad alternator or short in alternator wiring. You much need a wiring diagram. Is that the car? Was in an accident? You may have pinched wiring or a wire shorted to ground. Try new fuse with alternator disconnected, then with key on, connect alternator-watch for sparks, or clicks, -you might want to have the alternator tested, just to be sure. You have to start somewhere...
Maybe a wiring short in the blinker system? Or is the fuse blowing an alternator fuse?

Issue of fuse constantly blowing.


Is the fuse correct amperage rating. There is to much power going to fuse. If it is the correct fuse you have a short most likely ? wire touching metal. The power lose is because this is main fuse.

Won't start. new battery and alternator installed.


Assuming this fuse-blowing problem wasn't a problem prior to the replacement of the battery and alternator there are only a few possibilities to consider. First ensure that the battery you purchased has the correct positive and negative post placement. Some are reverse and it is easily possible to place the cables on the wrong posts if this happens (not the most likely problem, but needs to be mentioned). Next, check where you connected the red wire to the back of the new alternator. Ensure that the insulator is not cracked and that the wire is not in contact with anything but the mounting stud that could cause a short. If that is ok, then I would disconnect the wire hot from the alternator. Ensure that it is not touching anything, and reconnect the positive battery terminal. If the fuse does not blow now, there is something wrong with the new alternator. Yes, it can happen. Take it back, tell them what it does, and have them test it.

My 1987 Camry Alt Fuse Keeps Blowing. Brand New Alternator Brand New Battery . As Soon As I Change The 80 amp Fusible Link And Reconnect The Battery It Blows Immediately


I suggest to check if you have oil leaking onto your alternator or did you recently replace the alternator? Keep in mind that the voltage regulator is built into the alternator on vehicles and I have seen oil leaks internally short the alternator or poor quality aftermarket parts.

Also check ground and wires broke or in short.

Cable from Battery to Starter


The starter will be positioned on the side of engine or gear box it looks like two round tubes on top of each other one small and one bigger there will be two wires going in to the smaller one of the two, the large wire is the main power feed from battery (the loose one) the smaller is the solinoid trigger wire.

1993 Toyota Paseo won't keep charge.


the thiree wires usually are, one large heavy dity main wire that takes the charge current, one charge indicator wire and an exiter wire, when a car starts discharging it is usually one of the diodes in the alternator failed, there are usually 6 of these(at least) andthey should be dead short one way and open the other way when they fail they can be lowish resistance both ways and this discharges the battery, it will still show about 14 volts and give out 5/6ths of its rated amps but will drain, the ignition light(or charge light) is just a bulb from live to one diode and unless it is that diode that failed the lamp will work fine.The way to check is to measure the current through the alternator when the car is switched off, it should be very nearly zero
