Wiring problem

A buddy just swapped motors in his Zuk. Plugs were not the same so he had to re do things. He also has a GM alt. on it.
PROBLEM is it won't shut off when the Key is turned off. Starts and runs fine but won't shut off. He had to pop the clutch on it to stop it and when he did the timing belt broke [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] Any Ideas???

Re: Wiring problem

He needs to switch the two small wires on the alt around . The ignition is getting power back through one of those wires .

Re: Wiring problem

That Alt is probably backfeeding the ignition circuit. Trace it out.

This is exactly the problem. I made this mitake when I first put my alt in, switched the wires and it was perfect.

Re: Wiring problem

Just got back from his house ~~ yep had um ass bakerds~~ but Think he may have cooked the alt as well. Timing belt was OK he had a burned fuse so no fire to the coil [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] All this after getting his wife out of a sick bed to come and pull him home [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img] I told him he'd better not tell her that all he would have needed to do was replace the fuse and he could have driven it home [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img] I told him not to feel to bad I pulled a motor out of my rag top because I THOUGHT it was all messed up BUT all that was wrong was a PLUGGED CAT!!!!
