2000 Ford Ranger is killing alternators immediately after install

the best way to test an alternator is with a load test-partstores dont do that--battery may still have a bad cell even tho it tested good--an alternator can burn up charging a completely dead batt--make sure batt reads at 12.6volts and no less-----if it reads say at 12.3 its only 50% charged!

Battery light on, got new alt., starter tries to engage, but doesnt

Did you have the charging system diagnosed or did you just guess at it being the alternator . The charging system is computer controlled . The starter isn't working because low power , battery dead . Is there B+ voltage at the wire on the back of the alternator .B+ voltage at pin 3 at the connector pluged into the alternator .
Charge the battery use a volt meter an test for B+ voltage at the places i mention . No check engine light ? DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .

Why it wont start if the fuel throtal sensors,tune up,batt.., and altarnator are new

If it cranks, it is probably the fuel filter, clogged. Replace and try again.
If it just clicks then the solinoid/starter need to be checked.
If it does nothing, the connection to the solinoid can be the problem.
If it does nothing and the connection to the solinoid is OK, only other suggestion I have is the electric in the key switch or wires in the stearing column.
