Toyota Mechanic: Canuck Tech, Auto Mechanic replied 3 months ago

OK - I've sent you the diagram.

You'll see that the alternator is labeled with L, IG and S.

The connector is labeled 1, with a yellow wire with a green stripe, 2 with a black wire with a yellow stripe, and 3 white wire.

I'll look for a connector diagram, but no guarantees on that one...

If you look closely at your alternator, there should be some markings - alternator is labeled with L, IG and S where the plug goes
