It sounds like the idle air control valve (IAC) may be stuck with carbon build up. You can ether remove the IAC, or if your lazy like i am, buy two cans of Throttle body cleaner. Just follow the instruction on the can and pay attention to the IAC, try to spray the Throttle body cleaner hose towards the IAC. DO NOT USE CARB CLEANER, it's too corrosive to the gaskets used on throttle body's. If your going to remove the IAC, The idle air control valve is located on the back of the throttle body. It has an oval electrical connector and two torx screws holding it in. Unplug the connector, remove the two screws then lightly tap the body with a soft faced mallet to loosen it from the body. Once you have it out and prior to installing a new valve clean the seat inside the throttle body where the idle control fits. This must be very clean! Installation is in the reverse order. Btw, to save some cash, pull the valve out and clean it, this usually fixes the problem for quite a while. Look for crushed / cut, just any signs of damage to the wire harness to your IAC. After you have cleaned the IAC and still have the problem, you may have a bad IAC and needs to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps.

I wont list this as a solution, but it seems that working in the area of the alt may have moved around some wiring...the alt may be OK but perhaps an adjacent wire (maybe a ground) is not well connected. Also check crimped on wire loops on alt connectors..they like to corrode at the crimp where it crushes on the actual wire.
