It hooks most likely to the positive post of the battery.

Relaced altanator / battery and battery cables but still wont charge


If you have replaced the alternator and battery there is not much left to check. Check that the light guage wire is connected to the alternator. Not the heavy guage wire that goes to the battery. There is always another lighter guage wire that is plugged somewhere on the back of the alternator which allows the alternator to start making power and is connected to the red light on the dash. If this is connected, then I would suspect that you have a wiring fault somewhere that is not supplying power to this wire when you start the engine. Next stop would be an auto electrician to look for wiring faults.

Replaced alternator but battery light stays on the dash


This light on dash is telling you, alternator is not charging or current is not reaching battery. With a voltmeter check your alternator output at battery. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If less than that check output at back of alternator, big red wire bolted to alternator. If voltage is within specs. then you may either have a blown fuse, open(broken) big red wire from alternator to baterry. Check big red wire circuit integrity by proving back of alternator where wire bolts to alternator. With the engine not running, there should be battery voltage at that bolt/wire. If no voltage repair open in circuit, either a fuse or broken wire( usually). If still no output(13.5 volts) or more, check power ground to alternator plug. If these power ground check out ok, then you more than likely have a defective alternator.

The red lead wire on the back of the alternator has pulled away from somewhere and I need to know where it attaches to. This is on a 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.4 engine. When I took the bolt off of the red lead...


That heavy gauge red wire (called a B+ wire) runs from the positive side of the battery directly to the back of the alternator. On yours, if it goes to the starter, the starter main battery terminal would essentially do the same thing. (both connections are always hot and always come directly from the battery). If you meant that it became disconnected when you said "pulled away", you need to find the wire it disconnected from and re-connect it. If it just came out of a loop that was securing it, you don't necessarily need to find the loop but can secure it with a tie wrap, making sure it stays away from the manifold.
You could actually make a new wire and connect it between the battery (+) terminal and the alternator, using the same gauge wire, but I'd be concerned that the loose end coming from the starter could possibly touch something and cause a direct short. At the least, you should find the loose end and cap it off. The battery cannot charge with the wire disconnected.
Anything I've just written that you don't understand, just ask and I'll clarify it for you.

What is an ECM BATT malfunction? Is my ecm bad?


Maybe, maybe not. An automobile ECM has no internal battery and uses the battery under the hood for power. Check the battery to make sure the connections are tight and secure. A computer ECM does have a battery and it is located on the mother board. Simply remove and replace it with like kind.

make sure all the wires were connected back to the battery there is a red wire that sits by itself and when you disconnect the battery it tends to fall also check the alternator circuit breaker could be blown.

Honda S2000 engine installed in kit car. How do I wire alternator


Unfortunately the Honda alternator is regulated by the ECU, which allows the ECU to intelligently reduce alternator engine loading to improve fuel consumption. The intelligent system uses an electrical load detector (ELD) located near the battery to control the alternator output voltage. A two wire alternator has an inbuilt regulator that will always generate the required charging voltage. When a battery is fully charged and the electrical loading is low there is no need for generating the charging voltage, in this situation the honda alternator will reduce the output voltage to reduce engine loading, hence improved fuel economy.

check the battery connections on both ends.  You have an electrical drain coming from somewhere.  It sucks but you have to check all wires for a ground out.  If you were recently in a collision check the electrical connections near that area.  Good luck.
