Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Heath, If the cable is attached to the positive side of the battery, it will attach to the B+ on the alternator. If it is the negative it will be an earth connection. Regards John

It should be located in the fuse box under the hood of the car. If you have the owners manual, it sould tell witch one it is.

Removing the two smaller wires stops the exciter current to the alt which stops it charging.
Usually if a wire is getting hot its because:
A: Current overload..
B: Corrosion in wire restricting current.
C: Corroded terminal.
