Your best solution is to ground it to the frame or the firewall. to use the wiring harness on your alternator, go to your local parts store and get a **** splice, crimper and correct size wire.

Is it possible to connect headlights directly to battery

yes but its not case a short somewhere is this for testing its much safer...connect a 10 amp battery charger to the backside of the headlight fixture wiring by the wires on the connector(a small jumper wire will help here..) groung goes to any metal surface or battery ground .. then the charger hot lead can be tested with the bare jumper end connected to the headlight wires one at a time.. if a short is present..the charger guage will peg over instantly.. this way, you wont burn up any wires.. good luck.. be carefull..

You have a open connection somewhere,do you check the fuses especially the fuseable link at the positive battery post how about the power at the ignition switch it hot at all times,your disconnected somehow you might have to make a jumper wire to find what opened.

I have a 2000 Dodge Neon. I drove it to a store and when I got back in the car it would not start. This has happened before and I was told it was the battery cable (broken wires). I had that fixed and...

This sounds like a bad starter but you should of got dash lights and headlights, if there are no headlights or park lights and no dash lights then theres a bad connection, start at the battery remove the terminals and clean posts then follow the groung wire to engine block and make sure theres a good connection to engine, a quick trick is to use jumper cables and connect one end to battery neg terminal and the other end to the engine, a good clean spot of metal and then see if theres power, if there is then its the ground cable to engine, if theres still no power then locate the box that the postive cable goes to, this pos cable goes to the starter and also to a fuse/relay box, check that connection. good day.

My truck wont charge and the alternator is good,could it be a wiring problem like a fuseabile link

Hi check the earth wire at the battery and also the wires to the rear of the starter motor and altenator, make sure they have good contacts and are not touching each other. also make sure the main battery earth wire has a good contact to the body.

It sounds like the altenator is charging but the charge is not getting back to the battery. make sure the altenator belt is tight.

Im not 100% if this model has a fuseable link, bt your along the right lines something is not connecting somewhere.

I have found this fault is most commonly a melted wire but they can be difficult to find. Sorry I couldnt be more specific. It is difficult without seeing the car.

check your fuses sometimes when a blower motor goes out or gets replaced it pops a fuse if this does not turn out to be the problem its probably the power connection to the blower motor itself make sure the ground wire got placed back on the motor and has a good connection to the body and the power wire is free of corrosion and has a good connection

if this doesn't work get a 12v tester light from your local Walmart Kmart Target there about 5.00 place the ground on the body and push the sharp end into the power wire for the blower motor make sure the a/c switch is on. the tester light should come on if it doesn't check connection to the body / ground and try again if the light comes on there is power and the motor may be bad or have a bad connection if it does not you must have a blown fuse or a problem with the power switch

I hope this helps

1996 BMW 328 IC Convertible Altenator ok but not charging battery

Sounds like the alternator may be missing an excitation current source.
Check the 'IGN' dash indicator lights when you turn ignition switch on prior to starting motor,
if not one of the below may be problem:-
1) check exiter control wire is connected to alternator D+ terminal (low current wire, +V with Ign on),
2) replace dash 'IGN' indicator lamp.

Altenator Not working Well

were talking about the big fat wire right? runs to the starter where the positive battery cable connects. Be sure the connections are clean and shiny bright on that cable and the battery connections and the starter connections. Make sure where the alternator bolts to the engine theres no corrosion and the bolts themselves are clean too, thats the ground for the alternator. Check the ground cable on the battery where it bolts to the body and or the engine too.
