Redrider94 Look at the back of your alt and see if that plugs in somewhere, looks like that may be your field wires. Or it may plug in to the voltage reg on the firewall.

HELP! New alternator, but battery not staying charged!

My '88 YJ has a new alternator that I just put in yesterday but coming back from school, the battery suddenly died. Any ideas?

Also, looked inside the car and saw an unconnected wire (orange). Wanna know if that has anything to do with it!
Thanks for the help!
PS!! Here are some photos of the wires I saw unconnected
