Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

check all fuses, if one is blown replace and see if it blows instantly. If it does then those wires to that circuit are melted causing a short which could be draining the battery. but also check the battery with a cold draw test to make sure batt is good. could of been a ground wire under dash that smoked but you should be able to locate a melted casing on a wire. check battery first to be sure.
