Our Quick Take

The wiring to the alternator that charges the vehicle's battery and provides power to electrical accessories of the vehicle during operation may have been damaged during engine installation, resulting in a possible electrical short. This creates a fire hazard, and could also cause the engine to stall while driving and lead to an accident.
