In this wet, cold, snowy season, slipping alt belts are the most likely

Driving through 8" of fresh snow will pack a lot of it around the
pulleys. I have been getting the "idiot light stay on" syndrome for a

new metric one (Continental are very good). If the belt is not old,
check tension, they stretch a bit.
