Did you leave the key in the ignition when changing the alternator? Check the fuses for all of those items you just mentioned.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We had a mechanic replace the alternator. All the fuses are good when we wiggled wires they worked for a day and then they quit again
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.
Well then, obviously there is a loose connection or short circuit in the wiring that you wiggled.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is there a wiring schematic that we can get to trace them down?
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.
What wires were you wiggling?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The ones behind the alternator.
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.
I need more information than that. Do they hook to the alternator? What color are they? How many wires are there? Plus, did you ever say what engine this was?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We are taking the car to a mechanic in town to trace down the problem. Thank you for your assistance.
