View Full Version : charging system not charging on swap

10-24-2006, 05:03 PM
My alternator is not running the car only the battery is :ugh: . I tried 2 different alternators with no luck. I'm thinking that it may be wiring related. can anyone get me the electrical diagram for the charging system for the 3sgte, The link for the BGB isn't working. I'm so close to being done with this swap. Any help would be great.

Go to the 5th gen forum.
It has the BGB links in the top sticky.....

Also the link in the front should work....

Does the battery symbol on the dash come on?

Sometimes the pins in the wiring are different. Check the alternator cable, the one that is bolted to the top part. make sure its not broken and that its attached correctly and not grounding on the hood.

the battery symbol did come on the last time I started her up. I got the alternator rebuilt the other day and that did nothing for me. I checked the voltage at the battery and it was 12 volts. I found a procedure to test for high resistance, so im gonna do that and see if thats the problem.
