dummy lights came on

I got the Seat Belt dummy light as well as the Charge (the one with the picture of the battery) came on intermittently, but not sure how to diagnose the real problem.
The Seat Belt light just comes and go.
The Charge light comes one intermittently also and (seems to come only when in idle). I would come to a stop light, slam on the brake and that light would soon comes on. Green light, I go and the light goes off. I replace the alternator with a remanufactured one in April 2003. So its got just over a year and a half on it. Battery was replaced about the same time with a remanufactured one.
Car is old, 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera (2.8L engine) with 197000 km.
Should I suspect the alternator and get another one or is it the battery ? What might cause the seat belt light? I tested the belt on a downward slop by braking hard, and it locks as it should.

It could very well be the alternator. A lot of the remans aren't very good. How is the belt tension? Have you tested the alternator output at idle with a meter? FWIW YMMV DFB

Actually I havent check the output. Will do it though. By the way, where in the car engine can I stick the positive meter probe to? I assume the frame is the negative that the alternator is connected to. Where is it safe to assume a positive voltage? Unfortuantely I can't connnect directly to the alternator terminal as it is hidden by the engine bracket when its mounted.

Check the voltage on the battery. +lead to positive battery terminal. Turn headlights on and run engine at 1500-2000 rpm. Voltage should be 14 to 14.5 volts. At idle and nothing on it should hold above 14 volts if the battery is good. Also as was mentioned make sure the belt is tight enough. If you do not understand the above or how the charging system works take it to a parts store or service shop and have it tested.......

crawfish).
Stuffed infant heads, stuffed crawfish heads, stuffed crab or lobster shells; make patties if shell or head is not available (such as with packaged crawfish, crab, or headless baby). Flour oil onions bell peppers garlic salt, pepper, etc. 3 cups chicken stock 2 sticks butter 3 tablespoons oil
First stuff the heads, or make the patties (see index) then fry or bake. Set aside to drain on paper towels. Make a roux with butter, oil and flour, brown vegetables in the roux, then add chicken stock and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Add the patties or stuffed heads, and some loose crawfish, lobster, long piglet, or what have you. Cook on low for 15 minutes, then allow it to set for at least 15 minutes more. Serve over steamed rice; this dish is very impressive!
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Babies really can be found under a cabbage leaf - or one can arrange for ground beef to be found there instead.
8 large cabbage leaves 1 lb. lean ground newborn human filets, or ground chuck Onions peppers celery garlic soy sauce salt pepper, etc Olive oil breadcrumbs Tomato Gravy (see index)
Boil the cabbage leaves for 2 minutes to soften. In skillet, brown the meat in a little olive oil, then add onions, peppers, and celery (all chopped finely) and season well. Place in a large bowl and cool. Add seasoned breadcrumbs and a little of the tomato gravy, enough to make the mixture pliable. Divide the stuffing among the cabbage leaves then roll. Place seam down in a baking pan. Ladle tomato gravy on top, and bake at 325 for 30 - 45 minutes.
Umbilical Cordon Bleu
Nothing is so beautiful as the bond between mother and child, so why not consume it? Children or chicken breasts will work wonderfully also.
4 whole umbilical chords (or baby breasts,

I had this problem in my Monte Carlo, turned out to be a bad battery, then two weeks later my alternator went.

Fresh Sausage
If it becomes necessary to hide the fact that you are eating human babies, this is the perfect solution. But if you are still paranoid, you can substitute pork butt.
5 lb. lean chuck roast 3 lb. prime baby butt 2 tablespoons each: salt black, white and cayenne peppers celery salt garlic powder parsley flakes brown sugar 1 teaspoon sage 2 onions 6 cloves garlic bunch green onions, chopped
Cut the children?s butts and the beef roast into pieces that will fit in the grinder. Run the meat through using a 3/16 grinding plate. Add garlic, onions and seasoning then mix well. Add just enough water for a smooth consistency, then mix again. Form the sausage mixture into patties or stuff into natural casings.
Stillborn Stew
By definition, this meat cannot be had altogether fresh, but have the lifeless unfortunate available immediately after delivery, or use high quality beef or pork roasts (it is cheaper and better to cut up a whole roast than to buy stew meat).
1 stillbirth, de-boned and cubed cup vegetable oil 2 large onions bell pepper celery garlic cup red wine 3 Irish potatoes 2 large carrots
This is a simple classic stew that makes natural gravy, thus it does not have to be thickened. Brown the meat quickly in very hot oil, remove and set aside. Brown the onions, celery, pepper and garlic. De-glaze with wine, return meat to the pan and season well. Stew on low fire adding small amounts of water and seasoning as necessary. After at least half an hour, add the car
