You own a mini van. These creations were designed by engineers to drive mechanics crazy! :-( Everything is designed with little or no access. The alternator on your van is made of aluminum (so it's silver). It is located near the crankshaft harmonic balancer. If you look at the harmonic balancer, the alternator will be at the 10 o'clock position. It is on the passenger side of the engine, behind the engine block. One of the fan belts goes to it. The pulley on the alternator has a belt on it. Follow the fan belt which goes towards the rear of the engine.
PS You may have to get under the van to remove it.

How can I tell the difference between the battery and the alternater being bad on a 2001 Mazda MPV?

Connect a voltmeter to your battery with the car running, it should read between 13.6 and 14.6 volts, if it's under 13.6 the alternator is not charging enough.

Removing either battery cable, thereby taking the battery out of the circuit, with the engine running can cause the alternator to charge full tilt and destroy sensitive micro volt (computer controlled) components; and I've seen wiring harnesses go up in flame from it. You may have a module problem.

The alternator is what charges the battery, most likely there is a bad connection at or to the battery, or the alternator has quit working and you will need to replace the alternator.

I own a 2000 mazda mpv, battery light was on and a changed an alternator and light is still on and not charging my battery. What could be the cause?

you probably got a defective alternator...this happens more than it should...perform alternator output test at 2000 rpm you should make 13.6 volts and up to 100 amps of power under load.

Changed alternator in 2000 mpv battery comes on and off

Check the large fusible link labeled ALT in the under hood fuse box. If this fuse gets blown, the alternator wont be able to charge even if it IS new,because the ALT circuit is open.
