"An easy way to tell if alternator is charging, is crank the car and while car is running disconnect the Positive battery cable terminal. If everything is wired correctly and alternator is charging car will continue to run."

All window and seat controls appear to be…

Dash removal

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
