Hi all.need help with some altinator wiring. I've just Baught a denso micro altinator the terminals are bat+. Ig ignition and lamp. I've got two fat red wires to bat+ and thin blue to lamp. What about the ig? Should I run a switched live to this?? Also I have no battery light on dash when I turn the key it was the same on my old bosh altinator. If I touch the thin blue to a fat red I get the light on on dash so I know its working??? :wall: bloody hate wiring.

Thanks jhot80. What about the battery light issue. I've run a switched live to ig terminal but I still don't get the light come on when I turn the key. As I said I know it does work. Should I get a battery light when I turn on ignition? And then the light go out after engine has started?
