After I purchased a WD I noticed that it was not charging. I found that the end of the wire that is connected to the F terminal is not connected to any thing, and is just laying loose near the light switch and amp meter. There are no loose screws to indicate where it might go. Can anyone please help me? Thanks.

Douge, the F terminal is the ground wire, but it ran to the lights switch. it was grounded thru a resistor on the switch to give a "small charge" about 3 amps. when you pull out the light swithc the F terminal goes to full ground and gets about 10 amps charge. You can just connect the "F" to groudn on the frame if you want to test it for charge. for short runs of 30 minutes o.k. if you run several hours a day with tractor, you might want to get the new lights switch or add a resistor inline.
