Voltage Regulator Removal Wire Question

Blew my old voltage regulator on my RX4. Got rid of the old alternator as well and upgraded to a S4 alternator I had lying around. I"m removing the voltage regulator and also removing the wire harness that connected the voltage regulator. Question is where do I connect the alternator warning wire that was connected to the voltage regulator. Is it on the B terminal?? R is ignition and L is to the dash amp meter.

Thanks,

Mike

L doesn't go to the ammeter.

To illuminate the warning light you're going to have to do something along these lines:
