1984 Model 944 factory security system - does it disable alternator?

Alternator does not charge battery, but out of car tests ok. I have used Clark's Garage to bypass factory security system to start and run engine. Charge light works (heard if it is out, system will not charge in early models). Suspect exciter wire is not working, but not sure if I should bypass this with a direct wire from battery to test my assumption. Have also heard that security system disables alternator (true or false) and would it still be disabled if Clark's bypass routine is followed? Hate to pull alternator again, but will do so if not other options. Thanks for any advice
