Question type: General

1986 gmc pickup. no power to ignition
when key is turned. New battery, new
starter, new alternator, new fuseable links.
No power to stud on back of alternator that
goes to the fusebox.  Is this normal? I
exposed that wire and crossed it with a hot
one and everything works, starts and runs.
Seems sort of rough, maybe that's a
different issue idk. ALSO it is overcharging
with that crossed wire ,                           ___

It could be possible be a factory alarm system.. The car thinks it is being stolen. This worked for me, try with the car key to lock- unlock the drivers door 2x's, with the door closed.. if it does not work try the passenger door.. lock and unlock 2x's
