CS120 Wiring HELP!
I recently swapped over to the late model CS120. I am having some problems figuring out exactly where to connect the wires! The aftermarket plug that I bought only has 3 wires coming out of it.. A heavy gauge red, a thinner gauge brown and a black. I read the tech reference:
On the connector that I got, there were four wires and the body of the connector had identification letters. Here are the id letters and the color wires (don't count on the colors to be the same as what you get).
"S", this was a heavy gauge, red wire.
"F", this was a small gauge, brown wire.
"L", this was a small gauge, brown/red wire.
"P", this was a small gauge, brown/white wire.
The red wire from "S" gets connected back to the output terminal of the alternator just like in the "SI" swap.
The brown/red wire from "L" gets connected to what is shown in the diagram above as the blue wire. It's this wire that comes (indirectly) from the idiot light and it energizes the alternator.
The wires from "F" and "P" are not used!
....and can't seem to figure out how to wire this thing up! I see that my red wire goes back to the charging post on the back of the alternator-easy enough. The problem comes from the other two wires... My connector has "S" "F" "L" "P" marked on it, but only has three wires. The brown wire comes out of the connector right between the "F" & "L"!!!! Can someone please tell me what these other two wires go to!
