FORD TRANSIT ALTERNATOR PROBLEM

2001 Ford Transit • 141,000 miles

Hi.
I wish to connect a leisure battery to my newly camper converted transit. I am told that I should connect a wire from the relay to the "no charge light" wire that runs from the alternator.
Upon looking at the alternator, there seems to be more than 2 wires running from it (one is to the positive of the battery. The others, 3 of them, seem to be running to the same place but I cannot tell which is the one I need to connect to).
Out of the 3 wires, all different colours, one has to be the "no charge" light on the dashboard, but I do not wish to connect anything until I know the colour for this particular wire.
Please help!
Thanks
