A votlage tester can be picked up at any automotive , or home builders store. You just set it on D/C voltage , and touch the leads to the battery terminals. While the engine is running , you should be getting around 14 Volts. Less than 13 would indicate that your alternator is likely not working correctly. ( possibly it's bad , OR , one of the wires to it is loose , broken , or coroded.)
More than 15 volts would indicate a bad voltage regualtor which is inside the alternator.

This sounds like your problem.....Try this, only takes 5 minutes and probably whats wrong. The same thing happened to me, it was running perfect and died. There's something called an Inertia switch (google how to find it) the older rangers and bronco II's have them. It may think you have gotten in a accident and this device stops the fuel pumps. I literally pressed the reset button on the top of it and my truck started right back up after not being able to start at all.

Well... If there is a fuse for a Voltage Regulator...then it stands that is the fuse is blowing, then the output from the voltage regulator is exceeding specs. The fuse is protecting the circuits the receive power in that circuit. Replace the voltage regulator. You should be good to go.
