Question about 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser
The previous solution is incorrect. If he has an '88 land cruiser, it is an FJ62 model and therefor has in internal voltage regulator that will require you to take out the alternator to access it. Once the alternator is out, remove the back housing, then the remove the five screws that hold the regulator in place. It looks like the picture I have linked up. Good luck.

SOURCE: voltage regulator
Voltage regulator is built-in to the alternator assembly.
Have you tried replacing the battery?
A battery with a shorted cell will not charge properly and may even damage an alternator or regulator.
Note1: use a digital voltmeter (about $25 at Lowe's or Radio Shack) and check voltage across batt terminals while engine running. If more than 12.6 Volts DC and more typically about 13 Volts, then the alternator is working.
Note2: from Jan 98 to May 98 shows a different part # alternator than June - Dec 98
check the manufacture date on your driver door edge.
