Hey all,

Has anyone had any experience with the alternator idiot light coming on in there cars?  I am experiencing that phenomenom right now, and along witht the alternator light coming on, ABS off light, and parking brake are also coming on and staying on.  Voltmeter shows the system to be running at 13.5 volts or so (after reving up the engine), and the ABS is working.  Someone suggested it might be a function of having attached some wires to the back of the alternator incorrectly, but wanted to see if anyone else had some experience with this before I go hunt and peck.
