Your bypassing that as well. We need to show the alternator what the TRUE voltage is AT the battery. If you don't notice a change in your system voltage after the added wire, I'm stuck then.

That LITTLE wire from the alternator, goes to the PCM, then to the ignition switch. If the starter is turning the engine over with little effort(meaning you can start the engine in less than 2 seconds) then don't worry about the starter right now.

What leads you to believe the ignition switch is questionable?
