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.
