Cs130?

I'm trying to find out about the if you connect the "F" terminal without an idiot light or the "L" terminal with a light or resistor.
In other words can I hook a switched 12v without any resistor to the "F" terminal and have it work.
Thanks

yes you can use the F terminal without a resistor. The F terminal was used on cars with voltmeters. However, there are some alternators that have no internal connection to the F terminal and will not work. Give it a try and if it doesn't work, the regulator can be changed to one that will.

The plug that came on the alternator had a small wire on "F" and a small wire on "L". Nothing on "S" or "P"

If it already has an F wire then you can just connect switched power to it and leave the L wire disconnected. The S wire is a sense wire and is not often used unless the vehicle has dual batteries and the aux. battery is being monitored. The P wire is for phase or pulse depending on who you talk to. It is used to provide a tachometer signal for Diesels and some computer controlled functions.
