Do you mean a Beetle that had a generator and separate regulator that you're now looking to install an alternator with its own regulator built in?

It has an external voltage regulator and I thought that I had everything correct but it won't charge aND the idiot light don't come on

The generator light is energized by the thin blue wire.
