Shorted out the alternator, no start..
I was putting my coolant filter in, didn't unhook the batteries first. I guess I got in a hurry.
When I was pulling the air cooler pipe on the passenger side, and hit the positive stud on top of the generator with it. It arced pretty badly. Anyhow, I removed both batteries and moved on. Finished up the project today, and the truck wont start. I am getting fuel into the bowl. I hear what I believe is the injectors clicking. I unplugged my ICP sensor and cranked for about 20 seconds, no luck.
I am getting oil pressure according to the dummy gauges on the dash.
I am getting no FICM, EOT, or SYNC on my scangaugeII. The only reading it gives me is ECT. I checked all the fuses in the fuse box under the steering wheel and they are good. Im stumped. I hope I didnt fry some expensive control module or something.
