    Default Put new alternator in Vectra C 2.2 - electrical problems started

    Hi,


    Basically I changed my alternator today on my 2.2 vectra C (2002) as my old one had stoped working, put everything back together, but when I started it alot of electrical things stopped working (rear window heater, OS windows, electric mirrors won't go down or left) just really random like that, the other sides windows work and some mirror directions work, also i drove the car to garage and back a couple of time and then the power steering warning light came on and power steering decided it didn't want to work anymore


    Much like this fault on a 1.8 vectra I found on YouTube

    Any help much appreciated

    Check the voltage at the battery with engine running to ensure the replacement alternator is doing it's job
