Vs 1999 alternator pin out

Postby Humptydumpty » Wed May 15, 2019 4:10 pm

Hey again,

Trying to find the pin out to wire up my alternator off a 1999vs

It’s got only 2 pins but not sure what’s what.

Also I only need one wire to excite the alternator? (It comes from the charge warning signal light in the dash correct?)
I see allot have a second wire straight to the battery charge wire?

Any help be great.

Thanks :thumbup:

The 2nd wire is to measure the battery voltage.

Yep, one wire to the dash warning light, other wire to the battery.

3 in total

1 to dash (excite wire n light)

1 to battery for internal reg

1 to battery for main charge?

Cheers

Correct. If you leave off the battery sensing wire it will overcharge. I have cheated in the past and just connected it to the main output terminal but best go to the battery.
