Ewwww. Did not know that. Didn't want to drive 40 miles back to my house so I went to dads right down the road and borrowed his which I think he got from "the pepaw" lol. Big box with just a needle pointing at numbers that made no sense to me. Got tired of that quick so I went to get mine. I know how to work this one!
The diagram was great. I found a site that has all of the wiring diagrams in PDF. It also showed me I unhooked the wrong wires for the DRLs (put them back and got the right ones now)
Could it be possible for the car to start and run with a short in the ign wire? The car sat for months before I started working on it and the first thing I did was start it and pull it on ramps. I'm a lil tall. Anyway I don't think its a parasitic drain. Its something to do with the charging system.
Today I also found what looks to be a ground right near the speed cable to the frame. None of the diagrams say the grounds are where they are supposed to be except the one on the right inside fender. So I'm going to try running separate grounds in the morning.
Just to make sure I'm thinking right--im going to run one from the alt to battery, one from starter to the battery, battery to engine and engine to frame? I did stereos and alarms for a few years and only really had to upgrade things, not track them down.
No problem fixing issues, when I know what the issues are.
