I can't answer your first question without looking at a wiring diagram. I imagine most use the same configuration but telling us the year and model would help out.

As for the alternator mot charging, it could be a loose belt or a faulty alternator. Some auto parts stores will check an alternator for them, all you have to do it bring it in.
