Do any of the dash lights work, or just the battery light indicator?

The instrument cluster actually somewht controls the chargine on your vehicle. If there is no power to the cluster, the altenator will not produce any voltage. The ver first thing to check will be fuse #39 located in the fuse block. Make sure the fuse is not burned and that there is infact power to the fuse. This will require a test light. If this is all in order you will need to remove the instrument cluster and verify that there is power to the all pink wire. Let me know how you make out and we can go on if needed.
