My car wont turn off!!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys can you please help me? I am just finishing my 71 dime and finally was able to turn the key and get it running.

Great right? Well, when I turned the ignition off, the car kept running. I tested the wires to the ignition, and I have power at all times from the hot wire, from the ignition wire, and the acc. wires. I thought that the switch was broken and allowing power to run through at all times, so i got a new one and it did the same thing. I don't know if wires got crossed or if this is common.

 

I dont want to strip the whole harness down, can someone give me the magical answer?

I am running the external regulator, but I am not sure if the alternator is internally regulated. I don't know the model of the alternator to find out either, all I know is its a Mitsubishi alt. Would it jack anything up if I tried testing it with the external regulator unplugged?

I had the feild wires on the alt reversed,

No flag that can only happen if the T wire cam out of the connector.

One has to assume its stock.

But yeah those wires go to the Volt Reg

 

Johnny B get a solid state volt reg

autozone and carguest sell them for the 510

also Rockauto. they will have a thinner casing than the old Tall volt mechanical volt regs

Thanks guys! The alternator was internally regulated, so I fixed the wiring and now I have power when I want and none when I don't.

 

Thanks for the link 510 Freak.
