Is that a CS130 alternator?

There should be a brown wire that goes through the gauge cluster and idiot light. That attaches to the thinner wire on the end. The larger gauge wire attaches to the battery positive terminal on the alternator. Hope this helps. The middle wire is unhooked on mine, charges as it should.
