I have recently purchased a 1978 sedan deville. The first day I owned the car everything was fine. The day after my front windows stopped working, and a GENERATOR light on the dash board lit up. Has anyone had similar problems with the GENERATOR light? Can anyone tell me what this light could indicate? A friend of mine mentioned it may be the alternator, but the car has no trouble starting at all. If it is not the alternator, what could it be? Please help fellas.:helpless:

You could have a short in the front window circuit, which is causing a draw. I don't have my SM here, but I believe there are relays in the kick panels for the door circuits. You can pull the plug on the relay and if your light goes out, you've found your problem. Then just trace the line for your short.
