Hey David==one goes to the light or gauge on the dash and the other one goes to energize the field. Good luckJoe ==new answer== on a delco alternator, one terminal is a feed back that lets the regulator get a look at battery voltage. it should be hooked up to the battery. the other is a a "flash" terminal that starts the alternator charging, and commonly comes off the idiot lite. see the answer to "wiring a one wire alternator".
It is at the rear of the alternator, in the plug that hold the wires that are incerted at the rear.
More than likely they connect to the positive and negative polarities of the power source.
take the belt off the alternator and take out the 3 bolts that hold the alternator to the engine and unplug the wires that plug into it and you have it off.
Richard Gora is also using the older Geo alternator from the 3 cylinder models. This alternator has 3 wires. One is drirectly from the battery and 2 others are (or more correctly were) in a green plug. These are the power from the key and the lead to the "no charge" light. My problem is that I do not have the plug and need to determine which of the two wires goes where. Any help ? Thanks !!! Doc PS I have an ohmeter etc etc firstname.lastname@example.org
If the light remains on then the system still isn't charging as it should. Check the plug on the alternator and also that the wires to the alt have a good connection.
go to the store and get a new plug for your year of car cut the wires hook them up to the same color tape or shrink wrap exposed wire plug into alternator good to go
Power plug. Usually a round black plug with two small wires.
I assume your talking about the rectangular plug right at the alternator, and that your new Alt came with a short repair harness, the 2 heavy wires are BAT and the slim and likely white one is Tachometer AC sense, likely that 3 of the old ones were Bat test the old connector with a test light to see which of them have power to them.
Wires between Alternator and Battery, and between Alternator plug connector and fuse box etc.
Ignition switch, coils, starter, alternator, spark plugs. plug wires, battery.
There should be a heavy wire called the Alternator output wire, It carries power from the alternator to power your accessories and to maintain your battery. The smaller wires usually in a plug are either the alternator's voltage sense, Stator/ACurrent/Tachometer output, regulator/indicator light. or if its an Externaly regulated alternator they will be alternator Field, Stator/ACurrent/Tachometer. hope this helps
I have a 2.0 1995 Mercury mystique the battery charge light was on no output on old alternator. Replaced alternator No output from new alternator "charge light out" (wiggle test wires& re-check wires) at alternator *still no output* is there a fuse that could be the problem or just another bad alternator... I would check the alternator plug before getting another alternator, it may be bad. And is a lot cheaper to replace.
The wires in the plug are backwards. switch them around
The voltage regulator is inside the alternator. Two wires plug into the alternotor...that is the plug in he sees.
Check spark plug wires, and voltage on the distrubutor.
A 2000 Concorde does not have plug wires. There are individual coils on each spark plug.A 2000 Concorde does not have plug wires. There are individual coils on each spark plug.
There are no plug wires. The Intrepid has a coil on plug system.
Reask the question with year, make, and model.
If this 4.6L is equipped with the coil on plug type, there is a small screw that holds the wire to the plug, remove that, there is room to take it out from the fuel rail, and then there is a small clip to remove the plug wire from the harness. Replace as removed.
There are electrical wires all around the vehicle. If you are looking for spark plug wires, it does not have any. It has individual coils directly on each spark plug.There are electrical wires all around the vehicle. If you are looking for spark plug wires, it does not have any.

Just apply a small dab the size of a tic tac on both ends of the spark plug wire. Also a small dab of anti seize on the spark plug threads will help as well.
check the spark plug wires and the distributor cap wires
You should have C.O.P. ( coil on plug) there are no wires.
It may not have plug wires, check the top of the motor for a coil block.MORE: trust me, it has plug wires. They just pull straight off. You'll probably have to follow the wires around to the backside of the engine to find where they plug into the coil pack.
The spark plug wires on your 1994 Chevrolet Caprice are quite easy to change. The spark plug wires simply lift off on each end. Put the new spark plug wires on and push until you feel a click.
