IF the Ignition is ON & the Engine is NOT running, disconnect the Battery Cable & turn off the key
IF the Ignition is ON & the Engine is running, disconnect the Alternator Plug, disconnect the Battery & turn off the key
Once the Engine is off, reconnect what ever you disconnected & check what may be causing the issue

That didn't answer my question. I need help with the wiring not the battery.
Expert:  Don - Mo Lurch replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry.............The info you provided never mentioned that & the info was very sparse to say the least. ....My answer was correct for what you posted
1995 Silverado?........What Model?.......What Engine?........Automatic or Manual Transmission?


I need help with the wiring not the battery.

I cannot see or touch the vehicle, so you need to provide as much INFO as possible.........

The problem was isolated by unplugging the wiring on the fire wall. The orange wire comes from the hot side of the fuse box (this fuse box is under the hood). The other end of the plug is orange and green.
