    these small gauge wires are fusible links. If they are melting, they are doing what they are supposed to do. Do not replace them with heavier gauge wire. Check the red wires that run from the battery(+) down the front of the engine.
    If they are damaged they could have caused your problem

After hooking up a new starter on a 1984 fiero the starter engages as soon as I hook up the battery post

remove the small wire from the solenoid and try it again if it cranks then you have a defective starter

Where is the starter wire connected to?

It runs between the starter and the junction on the engine wall next to the battery (the junction has a bunch of red wires and other wires connected to black connectors with lots of wires and a couple metal bolts that secure some connections together)

Have an 84 Fiero and want to upgrade the alternator to a newer 100 amp style delco from about early/middle 90s. Where do the 3 sensor wires go to (the ones in the plug) not the one on the stud?

If you got the correct replacement alternator, the connector wires should just plug directly in to the new one. Make sure you have the right one, any thick red wire is the output to the battery, the rest i'm not sure, just compare to the old alternator you took out, maybe match up by comparing wire colors

I need to know how the alternator is wired to the vehicle in a 1986 pontiac Fiero. mostly the small plug not the main red power. Were do the two small gray wires connect

Per the shop manual those wires are brown and red. So pull back the black wire cover and check the color of those wires. On the V-6 the small red wire connect to terminal 2 , small brown wire connect to terminal 1. On the I-4 the small red wire connect to terminal S , small brown wire connect to terminal L

Ignition problem, won't start

Your battery may have reversed polarity. The same thing happened to me in my '94 GMC Sonoma. One crank and then nothing except my (+) battery terminal got so hot it almost caught fire. There is no way to test for reversed polarity and even on Autozone's test machine, they swore up and down my battery was good. They refused to warranty it, so I bought another battery. Once installed, my truck ran like a dream again. I took my battery to a different autozone and they warrantied it.
