Question about 1988 Toyota Pickup
Alternator, battery, all terminals and grounds- all are good. Charge light in dash is on, dash guages and windshield washer are off, and battery is not getting charged. Alternator belt is good. Bad charging system relay? Plug-in connector on alternator bad? Any way to figure it out without trial and error replacement?
If the brake light is on in the dash your ALTENATER is bad this a comin prob with toyotas for 1986 to 1995 all so check the wires from your BAT to the fuse box thay all so gobad you may need to remove the cover and check wire to be shur its not brok look for the white wire with black stripe10 gage

Connect the voltage meter lead the same way you would in a battery static
voltage check, Start engine (do not drive) at engine idle the voltage should be
between 13.6 to 14.3 volts.
>>>>> If not the alternator may need replacing.

Is the alternator new? has it been tested? U need to be 100% sure on this, if U are then the connectors to the alternator are the next place to look, check for burnt discolored connector terminals and burnt looking plastic shells on the connector.I CONTACTED A FREIND WHO KNOWS THIS MODEL AND HE SAYS THE ALTERNATOR CONNECTORS CAUSE THIS ISSUE, U SHOULD BE ABLE TO BUY A REPAIR CONNECTOR FROM THE DEALER
