Recheck the wiring. If ok, the alternator can be defective. defective poor quality reman...especially if from Auto Zone.

NEVER EVER EVER buy a remanufactured electrical part from Advance. Their new (not reman) store brand ones aren't much better. If Advance is the only parts store you can get to and you absolutely have to have a starter or an alternator in your hands that very second, and a reman is all they've got,be sure to save the receipt 'cause you will be using the warranty.

NO All engine accessories changed in 1994. The alternator will bolt in but the plugs are different as well as the amp rating. 1993 is a 75 amp unit and the 1994 and up models have a 130 amp unit.

Unfortunately the 2000 Mustang and 1994 Mustang are completely different body styles. The convertible tops are also different, so a top from a 2000 would not fit on a 1994. It might be possible to modify a top from a 2000 to fit on a 1994 but it would be costly and time-consuming; buying a top for a 1994 would be much easier.

It should be connected to the power steering pump which is under the alternator; probably right next to the battery.

Yes, but with fabrication work. They have different floor pans, and it is not a "bolt out, bolt in" operation. Actually, 1 or 2 companies make adapter brackets so that they are a bolt out, bolt in operation. Can't think of the company names, but if you research it, you should be able to find it.

yes. they are the same.Matcheskat
