Question about Cars & Trucks
You have two issues that are non related. Secondly, don't replace parts without having them bench tested first to determine whether they are bad. I would start by taking the battery to your local parts store and have it charged and bench tested. That is most likely where your problem is. After getting a new battery or charging your old one try starting the car. If it starts, then while running disconnect your negative battery terminal. If the car continues running your alternator is working. If not take your replacement part back to where you bought it because its defective. Not uncommon with re-manufacured parts from China and Taiwan. After getting the car running drive it back to your local shop concerning the check engine light. This is an emmission related problem that has nothing to do with why your car won't start. Because it was manufactured prior to 1996 it requires much more expensive equipment than the standard OBD found at parts stores.to diagnose it. Hope this helps! Karl

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

Double check all connections are clean & tight. You need to get a voltmeter and have the voltage tested at battery with engine off & running. Drive it to the Napa shop you bought the alternator from if necessary, they should perform test free of charge, as the possibility of a faulty one is not out of the question, provided all is connected properly. Did you check that a main fuse for alternator wasn't blown in Uunderhood power distribution box?

When you disconnect a spark plug wire, do you get spark when you crank the engine over?
When you turn the key to the "run" position (do not crank) do you here the fuel pump run for 2 - 3 seconds?
Let me know.

you need to replace the Park Neutral Safety Sensor on the bottom of the Transmission. Should only be a $125.00 part. Your battery and starter are fine. Replace it and iy will be fixed.
