When i shift trans into Reverse- the red indicatot light goes very bright on the alternator light?(1) Do i have a bad ground somewere?

Checking the grounds and other connections is the best way to start electrical diagnosis! You might want to continuity check each wire in the console harness to make sure there are no shorts and work your way back to the fuse block. Electrical problems are not fun, but sometimes you get lucky and it is no big deal to fix.
