Kia Sportage 2002 has two wires and a large common coming off the alternator.
One of the two wires on the plug in has no reading I ASSUME ONE IS FOR RUNNING THE LIGHTS AND THE OTHER THE MOTOR?
Battery is new but runs flat so I am assuming that the alternator wire that is dead is responsible for charging the battery.
an i bridge the two as a temporary solution?

Finding short in wire from altenater to battery

The temperature of the alternator is not read by the engine temperature gage. It gets hot because it is most likely trying to charge a battery that is failing, have it electronically tested by a auto parts store like Autozone or others, it is a free test.

Need wiring diagram,from alternator to plug-ins for briggs & Stratton (3500) Elite series Model # 030208-0

No wiring diagram available from Briggs. Try re-magnetizing the rotor. No AVR or Capacitor listed in the parts list.

Disconnect the wires to brushes ( pay attention to the order) and apply 12vdc to brushes. Positive goes to brush closest to the bearing. Start the generator and check for output. If output is normal run the unit a few minutes to ensure re-magnetization then shut down normally. After shut down disconnect the 12 vdc source and re-install the previous disconnected wires. Now re start the generator and test for output should be okay provide there is no problems with the alternator. If no output during the above re-magnetization then your rotor windings my burned out.

Blowing fuseable links from starter to alt, (well one) the gage is smaller then the OEM, however would a bad starter cause this fuseable link to fail, as the altenater is brand new

If this link runs from the alternator to the starter then i would say it likely but i belive the connection is to recarge the battery, the link that runs from the alt to starter connects to starter with another cable that runs to battery, so this link is used to charge the battery, heres a wiring diagram to show you. i would say its morelikely that the problem may be a bad alternator or the wiring from alt to starter is shorting. follow the wire (fuseable link) from alternator to starter and check it for shorting onto something, if nothing found then iwould say its the alternator or starter. to make sure which is the problem, when the link pops can you start the car, will starter spin over the engine if the answer is yes then replace the starter but if the starter doesnt spin engine with blown link then replace the starter, here are the wiring diagram to help.johnjohn2_148.gifjohnjohn2_149.gif

My alternater is fine and it is not charging the battery is there a fuse in line somewhere from the battery to the altenater

Ther is an ECM circuit that controls the 2.4 Optima engines alternator on and off. It probably malfunctioned. Mine did, so I traced it down in a wiring diagram. You can not use the stock alternator to make a go around circuit as the stock voltage regulator in the alternator depends on that ECM relay. I rigged a PRE-2000 year alternator off of a Sephia engine. You have to make a custom upper belt adjuster. Good luck. My setup has worked for 3 years.

The generator works fine but there is no power output coming out of the 110 and 240 output

Look for a 'slip ring' assembly that turns against brushes when the alternator turns. Make sure the brushes are in good condition and have spring tension to hold then to the slip rings. Look for tripped breakers. Make sure the mechanical connection is intact between the engine and alternator. Service beyond this requires a schematic, or wiring diagram and the knowledge of what the diagram is telling you. Many of these units have circuit boards that control voltage output. Good luck!
