Yellow/orange to top, blue/orange to bottom. Didn't have to unplug it to see it. (But did need better lighting!)

*Edited the colors, poor lighting in my garage made them look different colors. Also verified the correct colors with the wiring diagram.

It would not make a bit of difference of the order of the wires, voltage is voltage, you get same readings and sensing either way!
:p

In this case, it does indeed make a difference which way the wires go. The battery sensor is not just simply reading voltage. It also measures current and temperature. Todays automobiles are much more complex than they used to be. If one doesn't understand the new systems, it's best they stay away from them to keep from causing $$$$ damage due to improper service procedures.


From the service manual:
QUOTE
Vehicles have many control units that use more electricity. These units control their own system based on information from diverse sensors. It is important to have a stable power supply as there diverse sensors giving a variety of information. Battery sensor is mounted on battery (-) terminal. It transmits battery voltage, current, temperature information to ECM. ECM controls generating voltage by duty cycle based on these signals.
