SOURCE: need wire diagram to hook up trailer lights, truck not factory equipped w/harness,

I'm assuming you're just going to splice into the tail light wiring so that's what these wire colors are:
at the tail lamp 3 way connector:
black and yellow = park lamp
dark green and brown = left turn signal
there should be another connector with violet and black wire for reverse lights.
the stop lights are turned on through the turn signal circuits.

SOURCE: wiring diagram from truck to trailer

Get a tester light the type with an alligator clip and a sharp point.
Check each wire for your brake lights,blinkers etc.
i.e. With the blinker light on find the correct wire and splice into it with the corresponding light on the trailer. ( DO NOT CUT THE TRUCKS WIRE)
Remove the covering and twist the plug wires around it and tape or shrink wrap if you can.
Hope this helps

Where is voltage regulator?

Not positive about your specific make and model but most modern vehicles have the voltage regulator built into the alternator. Classic cars use to have one mounter separately on the top of the inner-fender in between wires coming from the alternator to the battery on the positive (red) side of the circuit.

1996 Chevy Beretta won't charge battery

Let the car run for a little while. The battery will read lower after starting because it just pulled power out to start the car. If battery light comes on or the voltage keeps dropping trace all wires and make sure connections are tight. I would think that a 95 model car would have an internal voltage regulator but if not find it and replace it. But be sure to unhook the battery first or you will short the new regulator out too.

P0622 code appears,pulled dk green wire to check for short,unplugged off altnator did continutity test,was no short in wire to pcm plug in Hooked up to pcm intermitted readings showing short.Do I need new...

Your best bet would be to go to an alternator rebuilding shop and have them test the alternator. They should be able to advise you. Sometimes, a different voltage regulator can be installed in the alternator if the one in the PCM goes bad. This was done on a lot of Dodge vehicles some years back. Lots cheaper than buying a new PCM. Good luck, and let us know what you find out.

I need an electral diagram of the charging system of a 1991 chevy pickup

There is no wiring diagram for the charging system, unless you're talking about the regulator inside the alternator. The battery connects directly to the alternator, and that's the only wire involved. If the regulator fails, you have to replace the alternator.
