Having problems with your 1983 Ford Fairmont ?
How to wire alternator
\015 Ive replaced the alternator on my ford ea but it seems to still drain the battery i need to see a diagram on how to make sure the wiring is done right on the alternator to the battery or where ever else the wire may go\015
Before you do that check for voltage diffrance when car is running to when its not if there is a half volt diffrance your alt is working the next step would be to do an amp draw test disconnect posotive battery terminal then connect a amp metter in series with the wire and check for amp draw if there is an amp draw thats whats killing your battery not the alt the next step would be to find what still has power when the ign is off
