this the circuit diagram for the generator, D+ is black wire, check that please (REPAIR THAT WIRE , BASED ON THE DIAGNOSTIC TREE, LIGHT IS NOT ON ,& IT TELLS TO CHECK THAT D+ WIRE & REPAIR
yes D + is the black wire , i sent the circuit diagram for review as a link to my dropbox ,so you can downloaded and zoom in on it .
we can go to the turn signal not working , after we get 14 volts back & see if the turn signal still not working

I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going todirect you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
i do need a vin # to assist .
