Nothing is wrong. One cable runs from the alternator directly to the ungrounded post of the battery, without any need of going through the key switch. For this wire to become "dead", one of the cables to the battery must be unhooked.

Replacing an alternator 92 Volvo?

I don't know if a '92 is different to my '84 240 dl but for my car it's quite straight forward. Disconnect the battery. There are 3 bolts to remove which hold the alternator, start with the one which tensions the fanbelt via a sliding arm. Once loosened move the arm/alternator to release the tension and unhook the fanbelt. Then undo the other two bolts and slide them out, then there is an earth cable, a live cable and one other to undo. I guess this may vary on other models with different connections.

Battery and Brake light come on for a short while then go out Alternator checked good and has a new starter what else could it be?

if the car dies when the lights come on then IT IS your alternator. Another way to test this would to be after you start your car take the battery cables off of the battery. if your alternator is good then the car should keep the car running. besides that there could just be a bad connection. if you live near an auto zone or a store of that sort they have machined they can hook up and read the prob inside. if it's nothing the it can reset it also.

The cable box itself would not be an issue. Cable boxes will not work on their own, there must be a live feed of cable for the box to have channels to choose from. If someone is not paying for that cable to be available at that residence but for whatever reason there is a live feed coming through, it would be seen as illegal.
