I recently figured out that the exciter wire to my 3g alternator is working. I have found that the battery light in the guage cluster is what excites that wire. My question is I have read that you can put a resistor in line to bypass the light bulb but no one has mentioned what ohm resistor to instal. Second question will it hurt to just run a wire from the battery to excite the alternator?? I don't know what kind of voltage the exciter wire is supposed to be getting. Thanks in advanced. 3g alternator externally regulated ON the alternator not fenderwell.
