We need to go right to the alternator and make sure we have battery voltage to the white/blue wire at the alternator connector. Next it could be the suppressor which has a two wire red connector in the left hand side of the engine compartment. We also need to make sure the engine is grounded properly. The engine ground strap is located on the left hand lower part of the engine. Let me know.
