Folks sorry for the double tap but forgot how the dash light was wired before? This is reference to I recently had alternator rebuilt/converted to a one wire but would like to get dash light working if able. I'm told it may work running wire from T1 to light. Question is do I run other light wire to ground or to key switch ?

Two wires from the dash light? One to a good ground and the other to the light switch, the same post that feeds the headlights. Don't forget to put a 12 volt bulb in the dash light fixture if you have an alternator. Single wire dash lit fixture? head for the lite switch.

Nope! He's talking about the GEN tellite, Not the light that illuminates the dash. Read his other posts.

See alternator was a 3 wire unit before being converted. If I recall correctly 2 alternator wires went to solenoid and one went to key switch. The dash light had one wire to ground and 1 wire to key switch. However now it's a 1 wire alternator.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. So we are talking about the charge (idiot)light.!! I've understood that it would be next to impossible to have a charge light function properly with a one wire alternator, but my knowledge electricity goes about as far as using a test light.

Easy to not understand! I initially thought idiot light, but after several following posts, I was having doubts myself. Smile
