on + positive side of the battery and i connect test light betwean the +cable
and + side of the battery.the light on the tester turn on. it that mean i have
short some.pleaee i need help if any one can thanks
If this just started when you replaced the battery and the alternator you should probably focus on the wiring you worked with to do this. Maybe you have a lead connected backwards or clamped in a way that is touching a ground wire or a part of the chassis. I will assume the main battery leads are connected properly (+ and -). Good luck.
Check the wiring harness in the left side(driver side) TRUNK area. You might have to remove some panels. The harness is attacked to the left trunk hinge and over the years the wires break and short out. Get back to us with results.
HI.i check both way.but i don,t find any thing wrong with the wire or short or hot ground.i foud out the after market remote start keyless entray was the problm grounding hot wire to ground and causing the 10 AMP gauge fuse to blowout .so i took out the alarms system and i connect the wireg to the original wiring diagram.after all this everything back to normal.thank you all
Good work...and good for you. Nice job. Thanks for the update
