SOURCE: alternator light on
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.

it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

With the engine running check the voltage coming out of the alternator with a digital multimeter it should be no less than 13 volts and no more than 15 volts.
