If i remove my dash clock can it affect my alternator

yes, and yes, you blew fuses ,
the alterator does use a sense line to dash IGN terminals.
forget that. you failed FSM rule one, disconnect battery neg terminal before doing electrical repairs.

test all fuses, no car, no year, no model stated, so cant show which fuse. 12vdc on boths sides of all fuses, key on, is GOOD.
fuse that look good can be bad.

you shorted out clock wires and blew fuses
easy peasy , prob.

1994 Buick LeSabre 6 cyc will not start after running fine

Disconnecting the battery (to replace it) has obviously reset something in the computer. I would suggest you call the service dept of a Buick Dealer and ask them how you can reset the computer. They are usually pretty helpful in a case like this

Good luck
