Bingo!!! Problem fixed.

When I replaced the original alternator (alternator #1) I also replaced the wiring harness. Apparently I stripped the threads on the screw that connects the "D+" alternator output to the wires going to the antilock system and the idiot lights (at the connector block) when I replaced the wiring harness. The screw was tight but the wires were not making a good connection. A trip to the hardware store and $0.38 later I'm back in business.

Too bad I did a warranty replacement on a perfectly good alternator (alternator #2). Hope they don't come looking for me.

Thanks for all your help.
