DC engineering wire harness

Im about half installed on the new dc engineering alternator, the directions call for me to splice their yellow wire to my trucks yellow wire, however i dont have a yellow wire on my trucks harness. I have two wires, a orange one and a pink one. Which one do i use? Cap the other one off?


Side note: why does everything have to work like this lol

No one has any idea? The new harness has a blue wire and a yellow wire, as the directions said, i connected the blue wire to the output stud, so that is a voltage regulating wire. The yellow wire is telling the pcm that it is working, so do i connect to the orange or pink wire? I kinda need the truck.

I'm late with this post, so perhaps you are up and running already.
When I put my DC Engineering alternator in, I had voltages over 15.7. Dash gauges/lights would come on, then go off after 20 seconds or so. Called DC's tech dept., and they told me to cut the yellow wire from the alternator and attach it to the output stud. This I did, with a crimp-on eye terminal. Then I capped off the yellow wire on the OEM harness. This provided a bias voltage to the regulator, and keeps the output at a max of 14.6 volts. Runs great now, and keeps my two Optima batteries happy.
Hope this helps!
