No, You've gone down that route of changing alternator's (3 times too many) you need to find an auto-electrician, or if you know your way around a multimeter then test the battery voltage when stopped should be 12 V , when running should be around 14 V. & they should test the current being drained with the car off & hunt down the power drain taking system's off line one by one.
Hope this help's !

On the terminal maked"l" you need to put switched power from the ignition[ the problem], will go away.If this is not an option then you can get an alternator repair shop to put a self exciting regulater and it will kick in with a quick rev of the engine,no wireing required
