The Generator Field Duty Cycle signal is technically not needed. It's just a check the PCM can do on the alt. All you need is to have the single wire "turn on/off" signal. I assume this is the same for your setup. I have used both in the past and also just the single wire. Works either way. PCM checks system voltage and kicks on the alternator with one wire (in your case pin 15). Totally up to you if you want. I am not sure what the benefit is exactly other than maybe the PCM letting you know the alternator is going bad or is bad.

i guess the question is what logic is behind the activating of that wire, does it allow it to charge the battery more smartly or does it just have on when engine is running or not ?
