We will use these two wires as inputs to the new harness. The bulk of the original wiring for the generator is gone - all that remains is the factory ammeter and wiring to the battery itself. Mount the indicator light somewhere where you can see it varies based on your car and if you feel like poking around in your dash too much to install it and hook the other side of the indicator light up to an ignition feed. Each of the electric motors is protected by a circuit breaker designed into the motor case. Before performing any wiring work like assembly or troubleshooting on your old Buick car, it will be best if you first read and comprehend this schematic shown here, just to make sure a proper wiring work. Before you perform any with your car, please be sure to have read and comprehend all parts and connections shown in this first, just for safety reason. Failure is caused by an open or short circuit between the switch block and power source.
We are constantly adding cars to our database. If motor operates with jumper wire, but did not operate with switch, switch is defective. The trouble is located between the feed wire terminals of both switches and right door window motor. If tester does not light, the relay is defective or there is a short or open circuit between ignition switch and relay assembly. The body service manual has 174 pages and is new condition.
Alternator conversions for older gm's 1963 to 1972 buick externally regulated alternator wiring overview diagram is scanned from a 1970 buick service manual. For more detailed 1958 Buick body wiring diagrams showing the routing of the wires and the location of the switches, connectors and retaining clips — see Section G of the Buick Body Service Manual. Inside this 1998 Buick Regal headlight circuit diagram you will find parts like: light sensor, battery, headlamps, underhood accessory wiring junction block, interior lights system, fog lamp switch, left and right fog lamp, headlamp switch, and headlamp dimmer switch. The trouble is located between the feed wire terminal on the relay and the master switch motor wire terminals. All information and color coding is from the original shop and service manuals.
In my case, it's already mostly handled correctly and I have no wires to move around - I just need a place to join the output wire from the alternator to the input wire to the factory ammeter. Buy now to own the best manual for your vehicle. It includes page-for-page reproductions of the bound manuals that Buick mechanics used to service cars. As I start laying out the harness on the car, I will see that there are already two wires that run from the regulator to the generator - the field wire and the main output wire. Fix it right the first time with the factory repair manual and save money by doing the job yourself. Only those 1958 Buick diagrams that apply to wiring installed by Fisher Body Division are included; for all other wiring diagrams, refer to Section 10-J of the Buick Chassis Service Manual.
By comparing a few other diagrams with the actual wiring in my car, I know that I have a junction block right next to the existing regulator that the the main battery cables connect to. Being car enthusiasts ourselves, we understand how our product is used, and how important clarity and accuracy are. This type of connector aids in tracing down electrical troubles. Think about the case of starting a car with a run-down battery - for that first minute or so when the engine does start, the alternator is going to be pumping out a lot of power to recharge the battery and run whatever else you have going inside the car. In addition, the window circuit includes a relay assembly which prevents the operation of the window regulators and seat adjusters unless the ignition switch is turned on.
I could also file the harness away and build a new one if I wanted to - I may just do that in the end so I know the new wiring is in good shape all around. If tester does not light, there is open or short circuit between circuit breaker and relay assembly. The wiring may be easily traced by paying attention to the color code on each wire and the color code on the diagram. If motor operates with jumper wire but did not operate with switch, switch is defective. If your new indicator does light up, then start the engine and make sure the indicator light goes out. Open circuits are usually caused by breaks in the wiring, faulty connections, or mechanical failure in a component such as a switch or circuit breaker. This manual is a page-for-page reproduction of the book that Buick mechanics used to service cars.
The parts to see inside are like: low beam, high beam, direction signal, parking light, horn relay, current regulator, junction block, starter solenoid, etc. This manual has 509 pages and is in new condition. We think that this kind of information should be freely available, as a public resource for the preservation of our industrial history. We make every effort to ensure the information contained here is as accurate as possible, but we will not be responsible for any errors or omissions, or anything resulting thereof. Short circuits are usually caused by wires from different components of the circuit contacting one another or by a wire or component grounding to the metal of the body. In addition, study the seat circuit diagrams located in this section to become familiar with the seat circuit. Next, we need to consider the size of the wire that carries the output of the alternator back to the place where it joins up with the large battery cable.
The seat actuator includes a separate spinning nut assembly with a solenoid for each of the three basic movements of the seat: 1. Typical Failures of 1958 Buick Six-Way Power Seat Circuits. The power windows and electric horizontal seat adjuster are actuated by individual twelve volt, reversible direction, series wound motors. The left door window will operate from master switch. We will show you here the about the of the 1958 all models. The diagrams show all of the basic components and connectors in the car per the original specs.
The 1958 Buick fuse block is held in its bracket by a spring clip and may be easily slipped out to check the fuses on one side or to check the connections on the other side. The field wire is already pinkish, and about the right gauge. The motor assembly is controlled by a three button switch located on the left front seat side panel. About the parts, here are some of what you will be dealing with: breaker, distributor, starter generator, ignition coil, ammeter, horn, side lamp, lighting and ignition switch, dimmer resistance, circuit breaker, dash lamp, and tonneau lamp. See figure 129 or 130.
