Check all grounds running from all electrical, If there is not a good contact this problem will occur, when you locate the ground surface take sandpaper or even a knife and scrape or sand the connector and the ground surface then reconnect it, It should return to normal if not then it could be a solenoid possibly but not sure

How long did the 2nd alt. last before it died? The voltage regulator is, I believe, attached to the alternator. Have u had the voltage regulator checked?

on the field wires ones a posative and one a negative and the single post gets connected to a wire that runs straight to the main fuse box in the engine compartment then is fused to another wire that goes to the battery have that fuse checked it could be your problem as far as the feild wires the positive side only works when you start the vehicle up to engage the field

I found the problem YEAH. It was the fuse that is in the side of the fuse box under the hood, Its where the battery wire from the alternator connects thru a fuse to go to the battery, Its one hundred and something volt fuse. It took care of the problem instantly.... Thank you all for your replies...

Drive the car to the auto parts store and have them test the battery and alternator for proper charge. You probably just bought a dud, even though they are new. Doesn't happen much but does happen.
