SOLVED: Mazda 323 1996 Alternator Wireing. - Fixya Hi i bought a mazda 323 1996 3 door hatch se. when you wire the alternator up it blows the main power fuse and makes the battery hot. i need a new alternator but there is a plug with wires on the back of the alternator and the wire that bolts on but theres a white wire coming off the top, do you think this would be a earth wire or somthing else?
