Re: Alternator Wiring Help - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
The alternator will not charge the battery if the charge wire is not connected. It runs through the charge warning light on the dash. The original harness has a pair of wires that run up to that area. one goes to the oil pressure switch (looks like you have an oil pressure sender installed) and the other goes to that spade on the alternator. I believe they are blue and white wires. Blue goes to oil, white goes to alt. It also looks like you have an aftermarket alt in there, as the spade is usually on the fender side, not the engine side of the alt.
