ENGINE STALLS WHEN CONNECTING SMALL WIRE T

1983 Porsche 944

Electrical problem
1983 Porsche 944 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 87000 miles

I have been working on this Porsche with my son and we have come to a problem. When we installed the new alternator we connect the large wire that goes to the large post on the alternator and it runs fine. When we connect the smaller wire (to activate charging I believe) to the other terminal the car stalls.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
MIke
