This alternator has only a main wire and a 2 wire plug. The bolt on terminal goes to the positive on the battery. The connector has 2 wires a small and a big. The big wire should be red can also go to a 12v source, the easy way is to attach it to the bolt on terminal, and the last wire known as the field wire, most of the time white or green in color must go to an ignition power. Only power when the key is on, this is very important, if you hook it up to battery power the alternator will stay activated and put a draw on your battery, You'll go out in the morning and the battery will be dead.
a 1 wire 100 amp alternator.
It depends on where the wire is being connected on the alternator. It could be the alternator or it could be a damaged wire or connector. It's something that you will need to track down.
I'm sorry, but WHAT DID YOU DO!?!?!?
It runs from the hot wire on the back of the alternator to the red battery box.
It's located on the end if the main power wire coming off the alternator. This wire connects to the starter. The fusible link is located on the starter end of the wire.
You can tape them off and tuck them away. One wirewas for the idiot light and the other wire was a trigger wire to excite the old alternator.
The red wire is the positive wire. The black wire is the ground wire. The green wire is speaker wire. The white wire is the auxiliary wire.
The purple wire for on starter 1980 Camaro is the solenoid wire. The wire can be dark purple or purple in color.
run it and then disconnect the negative wire from the battery if alternator dies its bad.
starter on 67 camaro which wire goes were. There are two one purple one yellow.
Loose belt, bad wire connections, or bad alternator. Your local parts store should be able to test the alternator for you.
If you have a new alternator its as simple as run the one wire to the solenoid. If you are converting the alternator to a one wire, you will need an external regulator. If you have a new alternator its as simple as run the one wire to the solenoid. If you are converting the alternator to a one wire, you will need an external regulator.
Likely a inline type (fuseable link wire) look for a section of wire usually near the battery that is discolored or try to stretch the wire they can burn off or break internaly, test this wire at back of alternator with test light and engine and key off, you should have power at the output terminal as long as the battery cables are connected.
disconnect negative battery terminal, remove the drive belt. then disconnect the output wire and electrical connector on alternator. remove mounting bolts and remove alternator. good-day !
The alternator is not getting power? At any of the wires or just the main/largest one? If you are testing the large wire, this is the output side that runs to the battery. If there is no power in this wire where it connects to the alternator it must have a bad connection at the alternator or at the battery or a break somewhere in between. If there is power there, I would look at the fuses.
If it is melting over a period of time, try replacing the connector on the wire at the back of the alternator, or replace the wire and connectors. A little more info would be nice!!!
I had this camaro sent to a Chevy dealer to be repaird. They said they replaced the ignition switch. I found out that they replaced the ORANGE wire coming from the ignition to the CCM. That's the orange wire that has 2 wires inside the 1 orange wire.
a bad ground wire can ruin an alternator by not completing the circuit
need more info. what year what motor?...factory motor or rebuld and what wires are you wanting to know
You remove the belt, unbolt the alternator (2 bolts), disconnect the plug and main wire. Take your new alternator, connect the main wire, plug, bolt it back in the way the old one was, put your belt back on and you're done. 20 min or less
2 wire has a live wire to energise the field where as the single wire alternator self energises and does not need the powered feed.
get a set of new plug wires for it that are pre-cut for the car and then replace 1 wire at a time.
This wire allows the alternator to keep the battery charged.
First disconnect the battery, Remove the wire attacked to the alternator bolt,(RED WIRE) remove the wire harness under the post, remove the belt 15mm wrench/socket will be needed for the belt tension pully, remove the top mounting bolt into the alternator thru the mount bracket, remove the lower mounting bolt into the alternator thru the mount brcket, remove the mounting bolt on the back of the alternator. its a simple replacement, to reinstall the alternator put all the mounting bolts back in the belt back on the wire plug back in the (RED WIRE)back on the wire post attack the battery. is also listed in the Haynes manual available at MOST auto part shops.
unplug the wire that says tach on the dist cap that's the one that reads rpm do this while car is off if this wire is unplugged it will not tell the computer to advance or retart the timing then set your timing to 8 degrees tighten it up and plug it in and that's how you set the timing
