from one new guy to another, welcome to the site, Eric! Still looking for some help with this issue? Perhaps you could tell me where the wires were cut and I can help you trace them from there.

When I get home tonight, I'll take a look. Even though mine's a Chevy, it should be the same.

I looked around & found two red wires & a dark brown wire going to my alternator. I was going to take a second look around the bay before saying anything for sure though. The two red wires, one should be larger than the other. I'm sorry I got tied up this weekend, but I'll try to get a picture of anything that I find.

the best thing to do that ive found is to turn on the component from the switch and take a test light to the wires and see which ones are hot then turn the switch off and see if those hot wires stop working. tends to work pretty well
