SOURCE: its runnining close to hot

Was it smoke, or steam? Sometimes, especially if a vehicle overheats, it will blow a head gasket, or even crack a head. This leads to lots of other problems. But the signs are steam coming from the engine compartment.
Solution: First step; When the engine is cool, after it has been sitting for a while, say an hour or so, remove the coolant cap and fill the radiator, or overflow reservoir while the engine is running To ensure that the system is properly filled and properly functioning. When the engine warms up it will circulate the water that you are putting into the engine and fill the cooling system.
Continue to let the engine run until the vehicle's temperature starts to indicate that the engine is warming up. Continue to watch it for a few minutes to make sure that it doesn't overheat. If it starts to smoke or steam then the problem is larger than just being out of coolant. Cracked heads, and blown head gaskets are sometimes tedious and costly repairs.

SOURCE: Battery dosn't charge, alternator/voltage adapter test's good.

Did you test the Alternator on or off the truck? It might be a problem with the control system to the Alternator. The regulator need a battery feed to work, It is usually ran through an alternator fuse.

SOURCE: Smoke comes from around engine

If you saw where the oil came out then that is the repair needed. It may not leak enough oil to get to the ground. Engine temp will make the oil leak smoke before it ever hits the ground. It may be valve cover gaskets because when they start to leak the oil gets all over the exhaust manifold and the exhaust manifold runs very hot. Rate if this helps

was the alternator bench tested? or tested on the car? if the alternator tests good off the car and the wiring has been tested, the ground may be loose or disconnected.

Battery light flashes check charging system no charging read out changed alternator notice smoke coming from fuse panel under engine compartment

Well the smoking fuse would mean the circuit between the alternator and battery is overloaded just like in a house.
Either a short to ground or a component drawing too much current.

Battery Light still on

The new alternator is probably ok.
I would say you burned a fuseable link in the wiring harness.
The alternator has a fuse wire between it and the battery to protect it from overload.
Have someone check the wires coming out of the back of the alternator. The big wire should have battery voltage, the small wires energize the alternator when you start the engine.

Electrical short or loose connection

did this problem start after the new alternator or is this the reason you replaced the alternator? sounds like a loose wire on the alternator or the battery post. make sure the battery terminals are clean from corrosion. if there is a hot spot on the wires or connectors that is a good sign that is a loose connection.

Chrysler 300m battery light is on; alternator checked and tested good. light still comes on after running for about 10 minutes. is there an external voltage regulator?

i thought so.i have a factory shop manual for your car,they are still available from chrysler but they are not cheap. the voltage regulating system is not in the alternator it is part of the powertrain control modual, the engine should ist determine if there are any trouble codes for this issue,but if there are the check engine light should be illuminated,but may not be. test for battery voltage at the main large wire on the alternator, if not you may have a blown fuze in the large fuze box under the hood. if not i would still suspect the alternator ,when tested at the parts store it was cooled of ,you stated the light did not come on for ten minutes.
