There are several possibilities, some of which are: you may have a bad new alternator, you may have faulty alternator connector or wiring, or may have a bad alternator MEGA fuse (175 Ampere if I remember correctly). Recommend test/check those items first. If you do not have the test equipment to do so we can test and repair at CarMasters Automotive 757-456-0722. We are have Free Loaner Vehicles by appointment (sometimes for walk in customers if not out/reserved already) are open until 8PM M-F and 6PM SAT. Please call Michael or Jim, Thanks
