Replaced the alternator on my regulars Taurus and went on a small test drive. Parked it and was talking to my service manager when the customer comes in and says “I think my car is on fire.” We walk out and sure as shit. I put it out and the alternator was toast. I had a mini heart attack. I looked at all the wires and everything was right.
