Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.
Have a look at the enclosed wiring diagram for your 1997 and tell me which wire your not seeing at the alternator. Your battery light is controlled by the internal regulator in the alternator. The wires that should have key on engine running battery voltage are the Yellow/white wire as well as the black/orange wire and the green/red. which one dose not have battery voltage?https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/ALt%20Oct%204.pdf
The white /black is separate. It should be in the larger connector on the side of the alternator.
Yes sure thing
Your harness has to match the diagram to charge properly, if its charging right the wires have to be in place.
Which terminal are you referring to?
The yellow/white goes to the A terminal on the alternator case, the black /orange goes on the post marked B +. At the regulator connection the white black wire goes from the S terminal to the other S terminal and the green/red wire goes on the I terminal ( ignition).
If you look at the regulator as well as the alternator you will see the terminal are marked. The alternator has to be wired just as shown in the wiring diagram. Is it? Im here all day to help you if your still needing help.
I have 32 years of handling these units. I will open the post back up for you. Best to you as well.
