i have a 95 GS300 and was replacing alternators regularly. Come to find out i had a leak in my power steering fluid (i think) that sits above the alternator. The leaking fluid was then shorting out the alternators without my knowledge. Check the overflow cradle that sits above the alternator for fluid. This could be your culprit as well. good luck...
