OK BOSS

HERE IS A DIAGRAM OF THE CHARGING SYSTEM FROM "PRODEMAND"

I HAD TO MAKE TWO SCREENSHOTS TO GET THE DIAGRAM

THEY OVERLAP- THE FIRST IS THE TOP HALF AND THE SECOND IS THE BOTTOM HALF.

THIS SHOWS "THE WORKS"-FUSES-COMPONENTS-LOCATIONS!

LET ME KNOW IF THIS HELPS

Hey medic thanks, I will check the other fuses, but I was told that the plug on the back of the alternator can go bad. What do you think?

WELL,

YOU SAID IT WAS TESTED AT THE PARTS STORE

SURELY THEY WERE PLUGGED INTO THE CONNECTION IN ORDER TO GIVE IT A THUMBS UP.

CHECK YOUR OTHER STUFF

RETURN WITH A GRIN!

Yes it did, but I was talking about the plug on the truck maybe having a broken wire in the plug that plugs into the alternator.

YOU CAN RUN A CONTINUITY TEST THROUGH THEM

IF YOU CAN FIND THE OTHER END OF THE WIRE

OR SIMPLY STICK A "STRAIGHT PIN" THROUGH-INTO THE INSULATION IN VARIOUS PLACES OF THE WIRE. ONE LEAD TO THE CONNECTOR PIN/ SPADE ETC. THE OTHER LEAD TO THE "PIN" OR OTHER END OF THE WIRE. IF THERE IS A BREAK, THE "OHMS" WON'T SHOW ON THE METER.

HARBOR FREIGHT HAS DECENT DIGITAL VOLTMETERS FOR ABOUT $5

THESE PICTURES WERE MADE BACK/ WHEN I FIRST STARTED COMPUTERING (I' M AN OLD DOG, CYBER BOX WAS A NEW TRICK SIX YEARS AGO) MAYBE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND MY DEFINITIONS ON USING THE VOLTMETER.

TAKE YOUR BATTERY LOOSE FIRST!
