The alternator is controlled by the PCM. Check the wiring to the PCM and also the power to the alternator. Sometimes when they go bad they will blow the fuse that supplies power on the three pin connector.

Check engine light stays on even after i disconected battery for 2 days


Your computer will store the fault code till it gets reset either by scan tool, or by operating the vehicle for at least 50 to 80 "good trips", trips that the ecm found no fault. It is possible there are other faults that the ecm has seen. OBDII systems cannot be erased like the older systems could be erased by the battery being disconnected.
