Need diagram of charging system for 86 buick electra 3.8 v6


Running should be around 14 something volts. Sounds like your charging system is not working. 1986 MAY have a separate voltage regulator.

Briefly installed battery backwards. 2000 Ford Ranger. New Battery, new alternator, but alternator not charging battery. Truck starts on battery-new starter motor. Lights work, all electrical works


Is this the alternator that was in the vehicle when you hooked the battery up wrong? If so, you probably blew out the voltage regulator in the alternator.

Taking the battery off a running engine will cause voltage spikes that can easily damage electronic parts, computers and such. Should never do that on modern cars, Ashley.
There must be a maxi fuse or a fusible link or even an in line fuse between the alternator and battery, if it's not charging. To fix it yourself, you may have to get hold of a wiring diagram for the charging system.
You can register for free at autozone.com, giving your make, model, year, and engine size. Quite a lot of repair information that is specific to your Taurus, including wiring diagrams. Look under the repair guides section, I believe wiring diagrams may be listed under "Chassis Electrical". Good luck.

If the ignition switch is effected by the loose
key cylinder ,it may play a role

You need to check out the switch
and look at a wiring diagram to see
what role the ign sw plays, with grounding
the alternator regulator,if it does

Put an AMP Meter in either battery cable
to check for excessive drain

Generic Electronic module.


The gem is behind the dash in the center, behind the radio. It controls whipers, anti theft, 4x4, cargo lamp, insterment cluster, plus a few other things. Hope this helps.
