After redoing the harness and finally getting things corrected to make a happy alternator I found I still had a battery drain. . . I took the alternator to get tested and it failed miserably but this was good news in a way (the search is over, I hope). Unfortunately it was just too late for my S6 alt the damage had already been done.

Reason why it was a wise choice to run that one additional wire? ? No S6 alternators in stock and were special order, S4 was next day So I got an alternator arriving in the morning just in time for me to have my car ready for DGRR.

Even after replacing the damaged S6, I don't think I'll be in the clear just yet. . . The "Charge" warning lamp doesn't illuminate with Key On/Engine Off and didn't illuminate while running with the damaged alternator. I'll check the bulb next.
