battery/alternator/charging system

Well ran into a little issue. Tried putting the 64/71/70 turbo on today and well, when i was installing it i somehow rubbed one of the wires that goes to the connector on the alternator and it sparked and smoked a little. Now i have a battery light on my dash. I didn't check any fuses or tested the alternator yet. but just wondering what anyone thought.

Hmmmm hard to say, does the truck start and run Ok?? Might try disconnecting both batteries and turn the lights on for a bit then hook it back up and see if it throws the light again???

Just a pure guess......i know just enough to get me into trouble.....

I 2nd the blown fuse and make sure that the wire or connector wasn't damaged and is still grounded. Then if you still have the light and the vehicle runs try resetting the codes with a scanner if there are any.

connector is fine there was a bare spot on one of the wires to it. I just put some electrical tape on it. I'll look for a blown fuse.

If the fuses all check out get the multimeter out and start checking for power with all associated connections. Make sure that you are getting power out of the alternator, etc. Chris

fuses are all good. as for using a mulitimeter, haven't a clue what one of them are or even what to check for. i noticed in the manual that there is a relay for trailer tow/battery relay. i'm just not sure i'll hafta have my buddy check power at the alternator. truck runs and starts just fine other than a batter light on the dash.

Your alternator is not charging. It throws a battery light to indicate this.

ok guys this is what i found. I tested the battery with the mulitmeter and it read 10.5. I then tested the alternator and it read 10.2. So maybe i fried the alternator then.
