If the headlights are adjusted properly and it is still too dim to see properly, you can add a set of driving lights. A high quality set from PIAA or other high end lighting manufacturers will cost $200-$300, but it is well worth the investment. You can also swap the headlamp bulbs for a more powerful set, ask the parts store.
If your lights are shining at the ground right in front of the vehicle, I would suspect that they are out of adjustment and you should take the vehicle to a shop that can accurately align them.

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I think your problem locating the fuse may be because Ford refers to the lights you are describing as "PARK" lamps, instead of "TAIL" lamps. The PARK fuse is Fuse #22 (15 Amp) located in the Smart Junction Box (SJB) in the center of the dash.
HINT: This same fuse also protects the circuits your front park lamps, if they are working, the fuse is not blown.
