Default Alternator wiring.

Hello,

I replaced the starter in my 2008 Aura 2.4L. I then noticed the battery light came on after awhile and in checking the alternator found a green wire beneath a rubber boot and figured out I left it off the starter.

Is there a diagram that would show exactly where that other end of the wire lands on the starter?

Thanks all!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

These will probably help:

#2 is Starter replacement. Shows green wire from alternator to starter. It goes on the same stud as the wire from the battery. Can't charge without it.

Also,
Be aware the green wire is actually a fusible link that blows in the event on an overload or short circuit. It should always be replaced with the
Make sure it isn't chafing when reinstalled. In this case it chafed through the fusible link and the battery couldn't receive a charge anymore.
