Bad Alternator --- Not... 200

Last week I had a haircut appt. but when I went to start my car, the battery was dead.
I got a ride from someone who warned me that the Alternator may have gone bad.
Later I checked around and found the following simple explanation:
It was the red wire which was connected to the Alternator and came loose.
All I had to do was tighten the connector and re-attach to the Alternator.
So, the original warning was actually pretty close, but sometimes the KISS principle really works. I have not had any more problems since then.
