Question about Cars & Trucks
How would anyone provide help without a wiring diagram?
That is what you need
You don't replace any part without knowing how to test them
& the parts you replace have to fail a test or your wasting your
money on replacing perfectly good parts
I would replace the Fusible Link before you do anything else
How could some help when you have no vehicle shown on this site? Get a wiring diagram & learn how the system your having a problem with works, so you can properly test it & find the problem

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

No fusible link, make sure the wires connected to the alternator are making good contact. If you installed a rebuilt alternator, it could be defective. Also check the voltage regulator

Testimonial: "Thanks for the replay, is ther a way to check voltage regulator??"
It doesn't matter because they all carry +12V to the respective circuits. What does matter is which fusible link goes to which circuit (assuming they are different) but if you didn't cut them off, then they should still be connected to the correct circuits.
