My car is a 94 Nissan Sentra with 169,000 miles. About 5 months ago the alternator went out (or so I thougt) and I put a new one in. About 3 days later the power wire to the alternator started to burn up. I put a shield on it to keep it from getting hot and that worked until now. The wire has burned as well as the screw the terminal the wire attached to. I have heard this may be because of the ground wire. How do I check it and if that's not the reason it burns the wire, what else could it be?
have the same problem?
