Need to check voltage at back of alternator, should have no less then13 volt's, if you do alternator is good, this is just a self test for you, with engine off, with test light check for voltage at back of alternator, test light should light up, if it don't look for blown fuse link at starter solenoid on fire wall. most of the time a fuse llink will have a tab on the wire, pull genly on wire, if it feels rubber like, bad fuse link,
