Question about Chrysler LeBaron
Could be just a need to reset the "check engine light", normally this is accomplished when the battery is disconnected for 15 minutes...If your Lebaron is now running smoothly, have the alternator battery tested for free at most auto parts stores for peace of mind. Auto Zone can also read the check engine light code for free. Tight belt, good tensioner pulley, good alternator, you should be in business. Most likely no harm done when the arc occurred.

The ECU would be another place to look. This is really sad and I can see you could spend a lot of money chasing a solution. My suggestion is, spend the money once, go to an Auto Electrician and get them to provide the answer which should be pretty quick.

Actually, although rare, this could be a computer issue.
The voltage regulator is built into the computer on your Concorde and may not be completing the circuit.
I'm not sure how you verified the alternator is good other than you removed it and had it tested.
To verify the problem is in the computer, find the orange/dark green wire that supplies power to the alternator.
This is fused power to the field. Verify it has 12.5 volts positive. If not, that will need to be repaired.
If it is OK, then find the dark green wire that also hooks to the alternator.
This wire leads to the computer which controls the amount of ground to regulate the amount of output from the alternator stator.
Attach a wire with an alligator clip to the dark green wire terminal on the alternator.
Attach a voltmeter to the battery.
Start the car and touch the other end of the attached wire for a few seconds (no more than a minute) to the NEGATIVE battery terminal.
If the alternator begins to charge you will need to verify the green wire is good to the computer.
If OK, replace the computer.
If you need more assistance with this issue, let me know here.
Thank you for using FixYa.

it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.
