The commonest cause for electrical faults in cars is the 'short circuit' which typically is caused by the so-called 'clashes' in the wiring system. Unless you are professionally qualified in the field of auto vehicle wiring (or mechantronics), you are advised against attempting to carry out auto electrical repairs on faults emanating from 'short circuits.' Getting things wrong here could, in the worst case scenario, see your car up in fire!
If your vehicle does not use an automatic tensioning device, then check belt tension as follows: With the engine turned off, grasp the belt at a convenient point about 8 to 10 inches from the alternator pulley. Move the belt slowly up and down. The belt should not move more than about 12 inch. If the belt seems to be excessively loose, then of course it will require tightening andor replacement.
