This is the 4th altenater I have installed the first one was still under warranty. This time the fuses did not blow but it burnt out the wiring harness from the altenater to the relays and burnt the Relay Board located in the engine compartment. I am seriously wondering why the small fuses didn't blow before everything burnt up. The altenator, the relay board and wiring harness all was fried.
