If the alternator is not charging the battery will not charge and kill the battery. The only way the alternator would stop the truck from starting if it was ceased up and even then the starter could turnt the motor over unless the battery is dead.

Battery fault on dash- alternator charge showing 14.6-altrnator itself ok

Batteries don't last forever. Change the battery. If the charging voltage is as described then your battery is not holding a charge. The only other thing it could be is a bad earth lead. But this is not likely.

Car wont start got a boost still wont start clicking sounds while tring to start is it the battery or altrnator

It most likely sounds like a starter. If the batt is good and it won't start with a jump than I would think its the starter. If it is easy to reach the starter you can try to hit the starter with a hammer while someone else is turning the key. Be safe and ensure there is no chance that the car will move when trying this.

With a 97 ls400, press the brakes, and everything shuts down.

There is a short somewhere in your electric lines for either your brake lights or your antilock brakes. Cant be sure where without looking at the car. Your gonna have to take it in the shop.
