Electrical question

On the alternator the three prong connector that hooks to the voltage regulator has a wire that comes out and plugs into another terminal on the alternator. What is the terminal for? The piece of wire between the two has been spliced and I believe that it wasn't a good one and is causing the warning light to come on.

If I jiggle that wire it will go out.

This is on a 3G alternator on my 97 F250
