The alternator is not producing any power . If it were the engine would run without the battery. Check the wiring on the alternator. It must ave an exciter wire to make it work.

The first thing I would do is remove the alternater and take it to an auto parts store and have them check it. If the alternater is working good, then check the belts are routed and have the right tension. Either of these can keep the battery from charging. It's very common that a rebuilt alternater isn't working properly. If all these things are correct, check the live wire to the alternater is live. If it isn't alive you have problems in the wiring and I would take it to a mechanic.
