What color are the wires on the black conn. you are holding?
Where do those wires go?
On your 97 there is a harness on the drivers side of the engine that runs
towards the front and has the temp sender conn., a/c compressor conns.,
the EVO conn. on the P/S pump, and the alternator inline connector
Not the one that plugs into the alternator.
There is a short extension harness that goes from there to the alternator.
The reason was that the old CS144 alternator was an option and it uses the old style connector like the CS130 used. That made it easy to swap between the 2 different connectors.
Here is the short extension the CS130D uses.
