I have a 1976 Stingray Corvette. Was sitting for over 1 1/2' in the garage. I tried to start it and it needed a new battery. I place a new battery it started up. After a few weeks now the car does not


You have an alternating problem..I assume on a 76 model you have an internal regulator...if you have no voltage meter then charge your battery and start the var then pull positive battery terminal...if car dies,alternator is bad and needs replacing.If it stays running your at least putting out some voltage but might not be enough...most parts stores(Auto Zone,ect)will do a free voltage check(on or off vehicle)

I have a 1994 dodge ram 1500 318 engine that suddenly started running rough as of yesterday and check engine light comes on?


I would start with the throd body and Mass Air Flow system for build up, do not listen to anyone who tells you that low grade gasoline is ok for you to use, your engine will not perform well on it and will cause a sticky residue on the throd body and MAF sensor. Also it is critical that you keep your truck with a clean air filter and service with oil changes and spark plugs as needed, follow dodge reccomendations, I learned the hard way 1994 Dodge Ram PU 1500 Quad and 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 PU both were the same way, they both had trouble with AC and Radiators as well.

hope this helps

I have a 1990 dodge w150 4x4. put new alt & battery in it. still not charging wright. pull positive cable and motor dies. already went through 4 alt. could it be the black box that connects at the alt.


you need to check your electrical system with a digital volt meter-when the vehicle sits overnight, the battery should read about 12.5 volts before startup. You should get the same (or very close) reading at the large post on the rear of the alternator, then start it up. Readings should go to close to 15 volts, and gradually drop down to close to 14 volts at idle, again at the battery and the rear of the alternator. If it is much less than 14 (like 13) or more than 15 (like 16) you have a problem either with the voltage regulator or the ecm.

How do you know if a 2005 dodge neons alternator is still good?


put a volt meter on the battery at idle it should read approx 13.5 volts. if it does not the alt is not charging the battery. That does not mean for sure that its bad, connections and battery power to the alt wil need to be verified. Is the battery light on, if so, the alt isnt charging.

1985 dodge powerwagon, lights went dim driving home now wont start, just replaced battery 6 months ago. starter clicked at first then nothing.


The alternator may not be charging the battery. Jump start it, and use a volt meter at the battery, red lead to positive and black to neg. The meter should read between 13 and almost 15 volts, any lower than 13 volts, the alternator is no good. (this is done with vehicle running).

Need wiring diagram for 1967 camaro v8 changed from external regulator to alternator with internal regulator


I am assuming you are now using a 1976 style GM alt.
The most common and popular model.
You need one 10 gauge wire from the battery to the alternator output.
This can be run directly from the battery +.
Run a short 10 gauge wire from alt output to large wire at regulator plug on alt.
Run small wire on alt reg plug to Bat light wire.
A new alt regulator plug pigtail can be bought at any parts store and is recommended.

The existing regulator should have the connections marked.
One of those wires will be the bat light wire if needed.
If you have a amp meter or voltmeter in the vehicle.....use your existing large output wire (usually red) to hook up to the new alt output connection.

I have a 2000 5.2 that won't start. Changed PU


Could be one of two things. If you changed all of this and still no spark it is either a ground problem or computer is bad.
