Ok here is what I have on the S terminal I only have 0.04 volts on my multimeter and when I turn the key the alt light does not com on at all, it only flickers when I turn the car off. Fully charged battery. I am also getting 041 code on my EATC which means {ambient Air Temp Sensor bad or open circuit}, and my horn isn't working but I can hear the relay for the clicking when I press the horn pad. everything works except my a/c because of the air temp sensor.
 I found something I think, I ran a jumper wire from the pos. terminal on the Battery to the Green wire w/red stripe on the alt and it started charging. Now does anyone know what this wire leads to? I am still waiting on my EVTM. Tested all the connections on this wire before I put the jumper wire on and it was only reading .46 volts at every connection even into the firewall.

I think that issue is with your wires
