Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
If the alternator is charging and the battery isn't, the battery must be shot. get the electrolytic fluid tested, one of those floaty ball things, they work great, test the battery,, one dead cell, no good, make sure the connections are clean, it won't charge up with dirty connections, check the voltage, it should read 13+ volts at any time. If not, well you already know it isn't charging, so, check it anyway. Walmart will test your battery for you for free, If you don't want to mess with it. Hope this helps.

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.

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...

there is a fuse in the output line of the alternator, but the colors you describe don't sound right, the only way you could find if one of these wires is ground would be to connect a multi-meter or battery continuity tester to ground and touch each wire(make sure battery is disconnected first) with the other lead and see if its grounded
