1994 Ford Crown Victoria Question: brand new alternator will not charge when engine is running

the battery is good i just replaced the headlight socket and headlight switch both had burns on them -
Answer 1
If the alternator is not charging, check the rectifier connector at the top - make sure the plug is not melted or damaged. Check the terminals - make sure they are OK. Other than that - suspect your new alternator is....not working! Headlight switch and socket is a relatively common deal and should be unrelated to your vehicle charging system. -
