What wire goes to the f on the alternator?
If this connection is used, it is generally connected to the light in the dash that shows alternator fault (NOT the voltage gauge!) and then through the ignition switch to the positive battery terminal.
On a dodge alternator the two small wires go to the voltage regulator . It doesn't matter which wire goes where, but the red or blue wire needs 12 volts when the key is on. The green wire goes directly to the regulator from the alternator. The large wire goes to the battery and it is important that you don't undersize this wire. The other wire is a ground wire and can be grounded to… Read More
How is the wiring on a 1979 Ford F-250 alternator red for battery what is the black and white wires for?
White wire is for signal voltage and the black wire sends the voltage to the battery, orange/red wire is your field wire that goes out to your external regulator, also there is a signal wire that goes to your battery gauge inside the cab. Read More
Not much to it, get the one wire alternator, and brackets from a 302 and mount it up, belts will be the same as the 302, wire goes to the battery. # wire is a bit different, red lug goes to battery, botton 2 wire plug should be exciter and is ignition power and a ground. Read More
I'm sorry, but WHAT DID YOU DO!?!?!? Read More
Indirectly. The positive cable on the battery is hooked to the starter. The other wire on the starter post goes up to the alternator. Read More
I have a 1994 mitsubishi mirage and a yellow wire has broken off the alternator i have no idea where it goes. I need help my car will no longer go. Read More
If it has an external regulator. The orange wire comes out of the alternator, then is spiced-"T"- into another wire which still should be orange going to the regulator plug, and the other wire coming from the "T" should be an orange wire with a tracer that goes to the "no charge" light on the dash. The other wire coming from the light goes to the ignition switch. Read More
There should be three wires attached to back of the alternator of a 66. You should have a black wire with a red stripe hooked to the GRD post, a black wire with a yellow stripe hooked to the BAT post and a white wire hooked to the FLD post. The black wire with the red stripe is the ground and splits off with one end bolting to the engine block on the same bolt… Read More
Why would the alternator light be on if the alternator is working this is on a 1985 Chevrolet truck?
The alternator light circuit is different from the charging part. The charging part goes to the battery, while the light part goes to the instrument panel. There seems to be a grounded wire in the light circuit. Read More
Well depends on which wire you are trying to replace? The hot wire that goes from the alt to the battery? Or the wiring harness? Read More
There are a two ways to wire an alternator. It depends on what type of vehicle options you had on your 65. If you have gauges you DON'T use the Stator on the back of the alternator. If you have just lights you use the Stator on the back of the alternator. There are only four things on the back. One will say Battery, Field, GRD (ground) and Stator. If you have lights and not… Read More
run it and then disconnect the negative wire from the battery if alternator dies its bad. Read More
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. Read More
it is on the intake behind the alternator. :) look between the thermostat housing and the heater hose that goes to the top of the intake. it is right in that area behind/under the alternator. it has a small 2 wire connector that goes to it. Read More
There isn't an alternator fuse. The alternator is the power source - it's not fed from another power source. That wire which goes to the positive terminal of the battery is there to transfer electrical power to the battery, not from it. Read More
if i remember correctly you have a heavy duty cable that goes to the battery and a light cable typically red that goes to ignition posative via the charge indicator light and some alternator have a earth wire as they are insulated this varies from make to make of alternator and vehicle maufacturer but the principle is the same Read More
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. Read More
Disconnect battery....... then the screw on terminal goes to battery( thick red wire)........ the green or white goes to Alternator field.........the Black to Regulator -ve......the red or brown goes to reg. +ve.....There should be a plug, its pretty straight forward. Read More

How do you replace the larger red wire on an alternator for a 97 Sunfire and what is it connected to?
That would be the battery wire. On some cars it goes over to a junction block on the firewall/fender, and on other cars it goes down to the starter. Disconnect the battery, as it is a live wire. If the wire is now too short to reach the alternator, take a peice of it with you to an auto parts store and ask them for wire and terminals, as well as a crimper tool to… Read More
This wire allows the alternator to keep the battery charged. Read More
To hook up a solenoid switch, the battery cable and the cable that goes to the starter have to be properly connected. The wire from the alternator goes to the battery cable side. Read More
It is the wire that supplies the initial field current to the alternator from the battey. Once the alternator is rotating the field current will be provided by the diodes from the current produced by the alternator. excitor wire is usually wired through the charging indicator light. Read More
Alternator not charging on a 1999 Camaro Previous owner put a jumper wire from the MAP sensor to provide current to the alternator when jumper is removed alternator stops charging?
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. Read More
On a 1961 Impala how do you modify the wiring harness from a generator to a modern alternator with a built-in regulator?
Hey Ginger==It is very simple.The alternator has 3 connections. One big one for the hot wire from the battery whivh is hot all of the time. The F terminal needs a wire that has voltage when the ignition is turned on and the L terminal goes to the light on the dash. These three wires are at the regulator and just need a little of checking out to find out which one goes where. GoodluckJoe… Read More
The red wire is a reference signal from the battery. This should go to the Battery positive connection on the starter or other full battery voltage source. Many times it is just jumped to the output wire on the alternator but this may affect charging voltage up or down. The white wire goes to the charge indicator light and goes hot if output voltage is less than reference voltage in red wire. Read More
This is the main output from the alternator. It charges the battery and maintains power to the rest of the car's circuitry. Read More
Buy a one wire hook up alternator and route about a 10ga wire from its output terminal to your battery positive or to fuse block, use a piece of fusible link or a circuit breaker rated about the same as your new alternator. Read More
how do you connect the wire from the alternater to the starter? Read More
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… Read More
You do not connect any wire from the alternator to the starter. The positive wire from the alternator should run to the positive on the battery, and the negative wire (if equipped) should run to the engine block (or any suitable ground). Most alternators are already grounded by the bolts holding them to the engine, but some do have a negative wire. Read More
The alternator slides with the alternator bracket. Loosen the bolt that goes through the bracket into the alternator. You may need to loosen the bolt on the bottom as well. Don't remove either. Then slide the alternator towards the opposing pulley to loosen the belt enough to disengage. Read More
The easyest way is to go with a 1 wire alternator (self exciting). Find or make brackets that will work, mount the alternator and run 1 wire from the alternator to the battery. Read More
ALternator fuses, if equipped may be on the battery post, in a fuse box, or in the wire going from the battery to the alternator. Read More
It depends on the alternator. The larger B+ goes to the battery (or starter) The other wire goes to a globe then to the ignition switch (+). Early alternators the globe was a vital part of the circuit. Later ones it is just an indicator. Alternators with more connections have external regulators, track down a proper diagram. BE aware : Some alternators will blow up if the B+ is disconnected whilst the engine is running Read More

If the car is wired for 12v, then there should be two wires that fit onto the alternator. The large red wire with the round fitting on the end goes on the B+ terminal, and the clip ended wire that goes to the coil and the ignition wires to the D+ terminal. A word of advice... to avoid burning up a new alternator (I just did that) make sure the warning light on the dash… Read More
I believe on most alt. you have a positive hot (red) wire that usually goes to the threaded bolt on the back of the alt. and goes directly to the positive terminal on the batt. and a ground wire that goes to the frame of the alt. usually you put it between the frame of the alt. and where one of the brackets bolt up to support the alt. just pinch it between the two… Read More
