    Default MSA Alternator what is this yellow wire?

    Hi guys

    question for s30's guru in you

    picture of my alternator in the car
    and new MSA alternator

    there is a yellow wire coming out of the MSA alternator with a sqare plastic connector
    that i have no clue what it is and what to do with it.

    all other things are the same on my car (1971 240z) alternator may have been modified by PO)

    MSA sent a connector that i do not need.

    Thank's in advance

    Probably the "P" terminal. Not used. It's looking like many of the brands are getting their rebuilt alternators from the same source, and the source is standardizing to reduce stock keeping units (SKU's). Fewer SKU's makes it easier for managers to keep track of what their company is doing. Shades of Dilbert.

    Anyway, here's a similar thread on the topic - http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/h...ease-help.html
