My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
They both do have to be connected.One connection goes to the battery while the other goes to the charge/battery warning light in the instrument panel.Below is a link to a diagram of the alternator wiring for your model.
Thanks Pete
