Question 98 Honda Civic - SRS Light - Power Surge?

I have a 1998 Honda Civic EX that recently had the alternator replaced. Since then, I have heard a new "whine" of sorts in the engine - very faint, but definitely there.

Over the last few days my SRS light comes on when I accelerate. It goes off when I slow to a stop. Additionally, the A/C blows very hard when I accelerate, and then back to normal when I slow to a stop. A loud whine can be heard coming from the engine (upon heavy acceleration) - mostly inside of the car, not outside. It feels like a power surge almost, and when this happens the acceleration is not so great.

I had a generic alternator and battery check done at Advance Auto Parts - it came out normal.

Anyone have any ideas? Could it be the alternator and Advance's test just did not read a surge in electricity?

Thanks in advance for any help.

97 Civic DX
I have the EXACT same problem. I also notice a slight rise in temp. that runs consistent with the other symptoms. I also have a generic alternator.
Did you ever figure it out?
