Think I fried something!!! Engine miss?
I had to replace the alternator on my truck. When I put the new one on it, I noticed that the connector on the big 8 guage wire was cracked and broken. So I replaced it. When I hooked the batteries back up, the started solenoid on the passenger fender had some serious smoke comming from it. I unhooked the batteries and then I found the connector on the alt. was touching the housing of it, causing a short. I then saw that the big wire (assuming its the one from the alt) on the solenoid on the fender had the isulation on the wires burnt off. i repaired this, and now when I turn the key on, my GP relay make a very loud CLICK. I can even feel it if I put my finger on it. Do you think I fried it?
Also, I just put my turbo back on, and I am hearing what seems to be an exhaust leak. I cannot find one, at all. am I hearing an engine miss? I never had cranked the truck after the turbo install(just got it on today) because I had to change the Alt too. Do you think it is all the GP relay making the noise? it sounds intermittant. Is the GP relay supposed to come on after the truck is running maybe? Maybe I shorted the comntacts on the GP relay. Do you think I fried something else? Could I have fried controls that go to the injectors? whit the alt. short I had? Thanks!
