Why wont my altenator charge my battery with a new altenator and battery?

(2007 Mazda B4000)
in Beverly Hills, CA on April 15, 2013
Altinator went, I replaced it. Didnt help. Wont charge battery. I changed battery, checked every connection and fuse. I checked for any draws, just a week draw probably from my financing company's tracking system. Mazda service tech told me that the altinator must be either a ford or mazda manufactured which are twice the price. Is this correct? altinator i put in is testing good.

Will it start and run? If so and alt. not charging after you checked everything else, sounds to me like a defective alternator!

put an volt meter on your battery and make sure you have about 14 volts going to the battery
