Recently replaced water cooled alternator, pulley, idle tensioner and belt. During
which time my husband proceeded to remove the battery and install the one out
of my 1999 M3.  Then fully charged x5 battery and re-installed it. Now my
electrical is haywire... Including transmission failsafe, brake lights stay on, no
