Re: Generator Light
Seems you may have lost voltage originating from the regulator brown wire with the engine running, providing the new hookup of the stereo is correct.
You may have also wired in another path on the ignition side of the gen light by mistake of the new wiring. If reg brown wire is providing voltage, then the new wiring may be providing another path on the other side of the light.
Start at the gen light. One side is supplied voltage by the ignition switch, engine off, ign key on - light is bright. Start engine, alternator generates current. At regulator, pink(?) wire supplies voltage for other side of gen light. At the firewall, pink(?) wire changes to brown and goes to instrument cluster connector. With 12 volts supplied from reg on one side, 12 from ignition swtch on the other side, gen light either goes out or glows very dimly, might have to wait for night time to see glow.
I suspect a wire from the new stereo install got tied into ignition wiring. I do not have the color of OE wire from ignition switch to inst cluster connector.
