I'm a licensed mechanic and own a starter & alternator rebuilding company . The main terminal can go directly to the battery as well as the the red (right hand wire plug facing away from you) the other wire generally white is your voltage sensing wire (excites the field circuit to start charging). Originally would be hooked up to the light in the dash as well on most models their would be a resistor hooked up in parallel as a failsafe in case the light failed.If the vehicle does not have the harness wired in you could run the sensing wire to a light that you would mount to the dash run one wire 16gauge from the alternator to the light , then from the light to a fuse in the panel where theres power only in the run position. Or run the wire from the ign switch through the light to the alternator . But overall the easiest fix would be to go to your local alternator rebuilder and have him install a self exciting regulator . Then you only need the main battery wire run to the battery.

Don't if you haven't already ground this circuit as suggested in the above answer, if you do you will burn out the alternator and probably your wiring aswell.

Does the 1992 Nissan Sentra have a starter or an alternator?

This vehicle (like most cars) has both a starter and an alternator. The alternator is driven by a serpentine belt, and the starter is located on the lower part of the engine at the transmission, where the teeth engage with the flywheel/flex plate. An alternator for the 1992 Sentra usually costs around $120-150, and a starter in the range of $90-120.

Alternator on a car is for re cahrging the battery. So you can have a starter motor without a alternator but you wont get far down the road when the battery runs out of power and the car will die.

Can a bad starter keep your alternator and battery from charging?

YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.
