tom this is foots i ask another question in the answer section sorry about that just getting to know how to use the computer i am old school but any help you can give me on this is really appreciated have checked the wires and body ground

There is a fuse-able link that runs from starter, check that. My van would start and not charge after 3 alternators I found that wire popped. Hope this helps.
