Hello everyone,

I have been trying to do some research and find an answer for the past few days but haven't gotten a for sure answer. I recently put an engine into a 2006 Chevy Cobalt with a 2.2. After getting it running I have noticed that the battery light is on and the alternator is not charging. I was pretty convinced it needed a new alternator until I pulled this picture up on Alldata about the wiring diagram for the alternator. It seems that this alternator is supposed to have a wire that connects the alternator to the starter? When I replaced the starter yesterday I definitely only connected the positive connection because I did not see the second connector running from the alternator.

The wire in question on the diagram is wire number 1. The only wire that I have connected to the starter in that spot is number 5.

My questions are these:

Is there supposed to be a connection running from the alternator to the starter?
And if there is, and it is not connected, would that stop the alternator from charging?

Thank you!
