I'm afraid you misunderstood. Instead of using the light in the dash for the alternator, I used a spare bulb hooked to the exciter wire on the alternator. Until the voltages match, the light will be...

Turning on the AC will bump up the idle speed. That could take it out of the range of what is causing this to happen.
Maybe a vacuum leak? Try disconnecting one of the hoses while it is happening....

I can't find a nice wiring diagram that shows this circuit, so I was thinking of trying this for trouble shooting the dash bulb:

So if the bulb goes out, the alternator won't turn on? Wow. I guess I'll turn the key and look for the light. Is it obvious, like "alt"?

I have a 1983 Porsche with the same issue. I thought the alternator was not working. Replaced it, and still no charge. Then I used my Powerprobe to quickly put 12V at the exciter wire. I think it...

Note, it will run, but stop almost immediately in the run position. It's easiest to check with the jumper. This will force it to run, checking the fuse for you. If it doesn't, check the fuse. If...

It should start as soon as you turn the key.

Try jumpering the Fuel pump and DME to power. 30 - 87 -87b. Unless the 15A fuse to the fuel pump is blown (comes after the relay), the fuel pump will...
