Broken Alternator Belt Queries...

Hey all...

Found out that my 84 5k (non-turbo) will do at least 108 mph before coming up
on traffic. :)
Also discovered that it won't hold an alternator belt for extended periods of
time at 100 mph. :(
Now... why don't any Autocheck or warning lamps light up? I've driven it for
about 25 minutes at night and all seems normal (lamps bright, easy starting).
Too normal. When I got home I checked again. Yep, no belt. I'm going to
replace it tommorrow, but anybody know why I didn't get a Auto-Check "Volts"
 or an "alt" lamp warning? _IS_ there an alt warning?
