This is for 5.7L engine. I couldn't get the whole diagram on one page and make it readable. You can see generator, that top terminal in diagram is generator bat terminal. Those two bottom wires go to pcm for generator field control. Maybe your generator is full fielding? Not a good idea except for a quick test. Could be wiring circuit problem, wires going to pcm, or pcm problem? Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction. Just my opinion. good luck
