there is a diod inside the radio behind the transformer its black with a white stripe on one end it needs to be change out. you might be able to see it burned and that would be the one to change. and it needs to go back in the way you took it out or take it to a cb shop to fix it about \$10.00 to fix it at a cb shop..

### The car was running fine one day then the next day it would not start. We tried jumping it thinking the battery might be dead and it still would niot start. The car has power until we take the jumper...

Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

Sounds like you have a bad stator or rectifier. If you like to work on your own bike get a repair manual it will give you several test you can do. Charge the battery to full charge, take a volt meter and put in on the battery leads pos to plus and neg to ground. start the bike and watch the meter it should be putting out over 13 volts if it is not have your rectifier and stator checked by a pro. also check the compression valve cable it may be out of adjustment . I had one of those bike for 13 years a great bike

### I have a 99 Pontiac grand am gt that has a good alternator that isn't charging the battery. The wires are connected correctly and the connections are clean and the battery terminals are clean as well....

Have you taken the battery to autozone or someplace and had the battery tested? I would find if you know the alternator is good it must be the battery itself. Might want to try that if you havent already. Good Luck Bro~

You have a dead short across that fuse, The end opposite the battery will probably show a ground rather than a resistive load. You are going to have to find that short and fix it. A dead short on a 60 Amp fuse is a heavy load. That fuse is probably preventing a fire or melted harness wires.

### I had put a brand new battery in the car twice and it dead in less then a week change the battery post and every thang

Locate the large red wire coming off the back of the alternator, with the car running with the lights on, heater fan on high and radio on use a voltmeter touch the red probe to the red power wire as you touch the other black probe to a bracket or suitable ground the reading should be 13 -14 volts if it is below 13 volts the alternator is bad replace it. If the voltage is ok there is a closed circuit or short circuit somewhere. Something is using power with the key off.

### Red light keeps comming on and battery goes dead.

Alternator and stator....put a voltmeter on the battery - it should read about 12- 13 volts. Then start the bike.... when its running, the volts should increase.... if it doesnt....your charging system isnt working.

Normal charging volts are about 14.5, 13 volts is too low. The spec from Ford is 14.1 to 14.7. Broken wires or a bad connection are common.,
