To be honest the conclusion I came to after wavering on this subject is; find an alternator shop to rewire the bitch to 100 or better, there is a guy on ebay that will do it for a reasonable price.



The link mentioned above does show you how to wire the 3-wire s5, s6 alt to constant bat so that it has a voltage input.

All I know is after reading everything I can on this stuff I am more confuesed than when I started working on it. Im with you but I drive mine everyday. Plus I was wanting to do the ultra cheapskate thing and just swap them, I got the s5 for freeeeeeee.

I swapped an s4 to an s5 and it was a peice of cake. One wire from the s5 goes straight to the charge post and the other one plugs back into the wire harness. I forget which one goes where and if it wasnt so damn cold, I'd go check now. I'll try to remember to look tomorrow.
