Default Disconnecting the hybrid system?

Is it possible to disconnect/disable the hybrid system in the Vue Green Line to make it a gasoline-only engine?

If my charging issues are being caused by a BECM problem or other fault in the hybrid system, it seems to me that I could disconnect and isolate that system to make the vehicle run only with the gasoline engine and the 12-volt battery.

But is that possible? And if so, what needs to be disconnected? Just the three blue-cable leads to the alternator? Or would there be other wires to disconnect as well?

I'm willing to take the hit on gas mileage if it means my vehicle will run and the alternator will charge the 12-volt battery without the whole charging system shutting down if there are issues with charging the 36-volt system.
