    Sounds like the alternator isn't getting enough voltage, check the ground and exciter wire off the back of it. From what I have seen due to lovation and such the wire and connector get damaged easily.

    After thought, check the tensioner and make sure that hasn't come lose and causeing the belt to slip.

    I agree with above, alt working with ya. Also check your terminals and enusre there good and tight and clean, and the main ground is tight and clean.
