Question about tacoma cover, alternator rear end
I pulled my alternator out to have it tested. I forgot to take a picture of the wiring setup. Now I don't know which ones go exactly where. I looked up a basic diagram on the web, then hooked everything up. It started up fine, when I tried to shut it off is when I realized I had a problem. I had to disconnect the + cable to shut him down.
Not sure I follow you. The alternator should have a main wire going to the battery, and a plug with 3 wires molded into it. It should be almost impossible to hook it up wrong.
I can get you the diagram but I don't know if it will help much.
You may need to go to a salvage yard and get a wiring harness to fit the alternator plug.
On a 2000 model 4 cyl the red wire goes to the gauges fuse, the yellow wire goes to the warning light, and the small white wire goes to the 7.5amp alternator fuse.
