Well, just for electrical basics coverage, the alt puts out volts and amps and it is possible for it to put out enough volts but not enough amps.
Best thing to do is to take the alt off and have it checked to see if it's putting out enough volts and amps.
If it is, then maybe the battery is shorted out and is drawing too much off the alt to allow it to run the vehicle.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: erratic control panel
This is the solution if your car sometimes has unexplained water on the passengers side floor after it rains and the Blower is working erratic.The solution lies under the large black bezel/cover below your windshield wipers. Under this bezel on the passengers side is a piece of weather stripping that has fallen off. You will see it right away. If you fix this and replace your blower motor and resistor your HVAC will work correctly again. I spent a year trying to figure this out.
Just remove the bezel and check the weather strip. You will be able to see where it was by the discoloration. It falls off by poor design and allows water to seep into your blower motor shorting out the resistor and if left unchecked will smoke the blower motor also. You want to add some silicon sealant and replace the weather strip to it's original position.
As far as the blower motor and resistor it is not all that difficult to replace. You will have to lie on your back on the passengers side to get at it. It's very uncomfortable.
Good Luck !!!

if battery and alternator are good. i would check the wire from alternator to battery, they sometimes have a fusable link in the wire, that burns out. also check fuse box there may be a fuse and it may be blown! at battery with car running should be at least, 14 to 14.2. at battery when car is off should be about 12.8 to 13 volts. have a good day !!

Prognosis is really bad, hate to tell you. Ticking comes from the valve lifters, losing lubrication due to lack of pressure and running dry. At redlights, when revs are at idle, oil pressure drops a lot, and engine really suffers. Have the vehicle taken immediately to a shop for proper diagnose and to see if engine can still be saved. The loss of power comes from the valves not actuating properly. Hydraulic lifters need oil at a decent pressure to "charge" , and if not charged, they will stay compressed, ruining valve lifting operation.
