yours is more of a blue/green

im painting mine all blue,, true blue, kinda a dark blue,,, more then light

with two white stripes downt he center of it



anyways

i started the car,,, and unpluged that top plug in

and it made no affect me unplugging it


i checked hte voltage with a ohm meter on the positive and negitive post of the battery with the car off and it read 12.05 volts then i tested it with the car on, "the haynes book says it should raise to 14, to 15 volts" but mine went down to 11.25 volts and kept decreasing, i think this is telling me that the car is running off my battery,,,, i think it might be my fuse link on that red wire going to my positive post ont he bat

ok guy's i fixed my problem

that connector was fine,,,

anyways, I followed the wire off my alt
all the way to the other side of my engine to my starter

and found a fuse link that was burnt

i pinched the wire and there was no wire in a spot on the link so that was my problem,,, so i fixed that, and now im reading really godo volts
