How do you know the alternator is good?
You need a digital multimeter to check.
With car off check DC voltage of battery, should be over 12 volts dc.
Start car and measure again.
If alternator is good, dc volts should now be over original reading, if alternator is faulty battery is not charging.
If alternator is good you may have a dead cell in your battery, if so replace.
A give away of a dead cell, is that your original reading of dc volts is under 12V.

I have a 92 toyota celica gts with a code alarm installed after market. I went to start the car this morning and there is no power to my radio and the on dash digital clock. Obviously the car wont start...

It sounds like you could have a combination of problems. But, my first guess is a weak battery. The first step would be to charge the battery and then try to start it. If it starts, then take it to a auto shop where they can check the charging system. If your alternator is bad, then it will kill your battery. If your battery is bad, it won't hold any charge and overwork your alternator. If it still won't start after charging the battery, then check the fuses and replace any blown fuses. If it still won't start, have it towed to an ASE certified mechanic. I hope this helps.
