Ask Your Own Car Question

you might have ecm or ecm wiring issue ,you need to do a continuity test back on the wires back to ecm and unplug it and check the connector for any burned pins making poor or no connection

Ask Your Own Car Question

this is the alternator circuit

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do you have a test light & or power probe for testing ?

Do you have a test light so we can check for spark ?

Do you have fuel pressure tester to check for fuel ?

I will have to do this test tomorrow morning.Getting to the connector on the back of that alternator is very difficult without removing it.

Okay,this is the diag. you already sent. I can't make out the numbers or letters. I can see GENERATOR, but can't make out the designations.

TRY THIS DIAGRAM , 2 WHITE / RED WIRES , THEN 2 WHITE / LIGHT GREEN WIRES GOING FROM ALTERNATOR TO ECM

THEN U HAVE 2 DARK GREEN WIRES GOING TO BATTERY SIDE BUT THEY MEET INTO ONE GOING TO BATTERY

ON THESE WIRES WHAT U HAVE ,WHILE CAR RUNNING ?

CONTINUITY FROM ALT TO ECM 0 ohmsFROM ALT TO ECM 0 ohmsFROM ALT TO CENTRAL JUNCTION BOX ( FUSE # 30)
point a(alt CONNECTOR) <--- infinite resistance NO CONTINUITY ---> point b(fuse #30) ---> o ohms CONTINUITY <--- poInt c(bat)Can you verify that fuse #30 is the correct fuse. Not clear in wiring diagram. And the fuse box template in glove box shows fuse #30 as an empty slot. If this is the correct fuse, we have located the problem and should be able to repair with a 'parallel' splice/shunt???

hey Mike

The one with no continuity needs checked ,peel off the harness plastic tubing or wrap and inspected OR run another wire for testing purpose

and YES ,THE FUSE IN DIAGRAMS IS FUSE #30 SHOULD BE A 5 AMP FUSE IN THE CENTRAL JUNCTION BOX BASED ON WIRING CIRCUIT
