Your bolted wire should have 12vDC, if not, check your main fuse under hood. Car have stereo? possibly poped fuse, or jumped started can do that too. The other connector at the Alt. goes to the PCM/BCM. Isolate the connector and test for a 5vDC reference at plug(not shure what wire w/o diagram). No reference voltage at alt = bad signal from Body Control Module. That is bad news. That will involve tracing wires, new module, crying, money gone, ect...

haha yea tell me about it im hitting the wreckers tomorrow for some new computers i checked my fuses but its hard to tell what goes to what due to the fact i have no book with the car any more so no idea what fuse goes to which but as it looks i dun see any fuses blown i checked the main lead with key on and no juice in the main red wire the only thing that i figure it might be is the starter looks to have a green wire coming out of the main power terminal thats been cut off at some point its a fairly thick wire could this be the cause of the issue ?
