Re: Alternator wiring issue...


Lose the diode isolator. Lose the home made parts. Make sure your alt has been wired for external regulation. D+ on most Bosch alts not a field terminal. The D+ term on most Bosch alts is for a dash lamp. It uses the dash lamp to excite and start up. Any good shop can bring a field wire out for you. Be sure it is wired as a "P" type for the field..
