Alternators
Car Batteries

I have replaced the alternator starter and the solenoid on my 1991 Ford Ranger and when you disconnect the battery cable it kills the engine. What else can be wrong?

Never disconnect a battery while an engine is running!

I have '94 and it right by your battery. 1st you need to disconnect your battery then you need to get wires leading to your solenoid. then you can disconnect those, finally you can need to unscrew the mounts. there you go


4.0L Engines V6 # Disconnect negative battery cable # Remove alternator drivebelt # Disconnect the electrical connector from the alternator # Remove the rubber weather boot from the alternator B+ terminal nut,remove the nut and disconnect the battery cable from the B+ terminal # Remove the nut from the alternator mounting stud,remove the two alternator mounting bolts and remove the alternator 4.6L Engines V8 # Disconnect negative battery cable.Remove the air intake duct # Remove the four alternator monting bracket bolts # Remove the drivebelt # Remove the two lower alternator mounting nuts from the mounting studs # Tilt the alternator forward to access the electrical connectors on the backside of the alternator B+ terminal nut and disconnect the battery cable from the B+ terminal,then disconnect the electrical connector from the alternator

Start the vehicle then disconnect the battery. If the motor dies, you probably have a bad alternator.

Disconnect it. let it cool and replace it. If you battery is boiling that is an indication the alternator is overcharging the battery. Have the alternator checked at any auto parts store.



Disconnect the battery ground, disconnect the wire from the back of the alternator which goes to the battery positive, unbolt the alternator from the bracket, detach any remaining wiring from the alternator, the replacement procedure is the same in reverse. It's a pretty simple task.


Disconnect the battery. Take the drive belt off of the alternator. Disconnect the wires from the alternators rear. Unbolt the alternator, remove, and install the new one. Reconnect the wires, belt, and battery to finish the installation.


The wire from the battery to solenoid is corroded & should be replaced.
