Question about Cars & Trucks
The wire from the alternator may be a fuse link or connect to one. Fuse links protect the wiring harness from going up in smoke when there is a high current short. Get a manual from an auto parts store to find the locations of the fuse links.

sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.

Your voltage regulator supplies the path for the control lead of the alternator and varies the amount of current available to provide the magnetic field of the armature with the required strength.
Measuring from this lead to ground won't show much voltage.
Apparently the regulator is not integrated into the alternator and is probably failed. If you can chase the control lead backward, you will find the regulator and these are mostly mounted on the fender well or firewall.

SOURCE: check engine light has come on
You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why the light is on.
If there is an advanced auto or an autozone near you, go there and tell them the engine light is on, and you need a code retrieved. They don't charge for this, where other places do. Tales about a minute.
