SOURCE: voltage regulator
Voltage regulator is built-in to the alternator assembly.
Have you tried replacing the battery?
A battery with a shorted cell will not charge properly and may even damage an alternator or regulator.
Note1: use a digital voltmeter (about $25 at Lowe's or Radio Shack) and check voltage across batt terminals while engine running. If more than 12.6 Volts DC and more typically about 13 Volts, then the alternator is working.
Note2: from Jan 98 to May 98 shows a different part # alternator than June - Dec 98
check the manufacture date on your driver door edge.

The link below is a Typical fog lamp / driving lamp hookup. Keep in mind that in most states, for these lamps to be 'legal' (and thus pass inspection), you must wire them such that:
1. You can cut them off (in other words, there must be a switch installed to turn them off)
2. They may only be operated with the low beams. (therefore, you must power your on/off switch from the low beam circuit)

The regulator is in the alternator. Did you check voltage at the battery? Nothing in the diagram jumps out at me. Is the check engine light on? Maybe we could get a hint if there was a trouble code.
