i was working on my grand am 3100l and i accidently grounded out my alt live wire wondering if theres a fuse or what not cause car now wont keep a charge
more than likely shorted out the diode bridge in the alternator. Check the electrical system for shorts and verify the actual problem before repairing or replacing parts
Unfortunately a lot of vehicle designs don't fuse the output of alternator. If you have splashed the +ve wire while the engine was running you can probably kiss the regulator goodbye as tbaxleyjr has advised.
the GM alternators are famous for popping regulators and shorting out the
rectifier block.after you replace it ,i would suggest installing some kind
of safety device rated at 20 percent over the current limit of your
whether the 3.1 litre you have has a fusible link or not,you have to check the schematic.
