    Hmmm... I'm an electrical dummy when it comes to this stuff. Have you checked your fuses?

    I had a problem with the alternator on my 94 900S convertible. I had three alternator brackets break, each time the alternator failed to charge the battery because the belt was no longer properly positioned. Even though I used all the proper bushings, the bracket still vibrated so badly that it broke. I am on my 4th bracket and it still vibrates, any ideas on that?
