19 hp Kohler Command not charging

I have a 19hp Command that is not charging the battery. Replacing the steering sector and I find a white wire that looks like it is coming from the voltage regulator and it is not connected. Can someone tell me where this connects, I assume it is either the + or - battery post, but I'm just assuming. You know what they say about assuming. This is on a Ford/New Holland LS55 which is basically a Toro Wheelhorse. Thanks in advance.

Try this little trick before you go cutting into the wiring.
Get a piece of 14 to 16 Ga wire about 12 to 16" long.

Stripe about 1" of insulation from each end.

Locate the Rectifier/voltage regulator.

Loosen one of the screws that hold it to the engine.

Wrap one end of the wire around the screw and tighten it.

Start the engine.
If it has an AMP Meter watch it as you touch the other end to a good clean ground on the frame.

If the AMP meter jumps to the + side and shows that it is charging. Shut the engine off.

Attach the wire permanently and check the AMP meter again with the engine running. Do not worry if the AMP meter is "buried" or maxed out on the + side. It will return to normal once the battery is fully charged. After the engine has ran a minute or two. Engage the blades if you have an electric PTO and turn the lights on if you have them. The AMP meter should stay on the + side with the engine running at full throttle.

Although I can NOT say with certainty, I can say from looking at the Kohler Command Service Manual, that the White and/or Yellow is the typically the Magneto "kill" wire.

The wire for the output of the V/R is typically Purple.

HOWEVER...Kohler may have made changes to meet the specification of Ford/New Holland. The only way to positively know, is getting a Factory Wiring Diagram.
