[quote="Rudpro"]There was a problem with a wiring harness on the Contour where wires would rub or chafe on the subframe, in the vicinity of the alternator. That could be your problem. Problem, but that wouldn't help you unfortunately. I would start inspecting all the wiring in that area, looking for signs of wear or chafing. If you find wires that are worn and shorting out, you'll have to repair them yourself.
Thanks that was the problem
