one wire should be the exciter wire and one for the gauge. but if you don't have 12 volt direct to large red wire you won't get any charge. this is a interally regulated alt. i am guessing. have you checked all grounds and made sure you don't have a fuse or fuseable link somewhere.
#10 of 29 Headlight problems

I have a 97 camaro with the headlights that come on automatically when it gets dark. The low beams do not come on, but the high beams will. I have tried replacing the low beam bulbs, but that doesn' t work. I have also tried to turn on the headlights manually with the switch on the dash and that doesn't work either.
Is there a fuse or relay just for the low beams? How can I tell if it is the headlight switch or the multi-function switch on the column that has the turn signals, wipers, and cruise control?

there is typically three wires on the back of the headlight bulb. 1 wire for high and 1 wire for low and 1 common. but it sounds like the high low swicth to me. does the car have daytime running lights?

Ok got the alt problem solved now could someone tell me why my speedometer will not work all it does is bounce back and forth ? 91 rs new 385 new 700 tranny I put the stock sensor back in the tranny was that a no no ?

is it the same transmission or a differnt model? make sure that the reverse lights are working as they are usually in the same circuit.

I also have a 97 camaro with the same problem. The low beams do not work at all. I looked for a fuse but there isn't one in the engine compartment or the dash fuse boxes. I called the local Chevrolet dealer and they don't seem to know either. If you find out let me know. John

head lamps may not have a fuse per say it may be a fusable link. but a simple voltage presents test will tell you if you have a high low switch problem
