Usually the auto parts store has a alternator test machine but its not uncommon for a rebuilt alternator to be defective right out of the box, If they have a test machine have them but it on there and see if its bad.

Even a new alternator can be bad right out of the box, have them test it to see if its bad.

Also check all of the wires and connectors for damage. Make sure the grounds are secure as well. Is the battery fully charged?
