Hello and thank you for your question,

if you take a 12 volt test light and or a volt meter and check the voltage at the alternator connector with the engine running by back probing the yellow/white wire as well as the black/yellow wire and the green/red wire are you getting battery voltage on all three wires?

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

All three wires at the alter need to have battery voltage with the engine running. There are two fuse to check as well. Check the F1-11 fuse in the under hood fuse panel as well as the F2-16 fuse in the interior fuse panel. See the wiring diagram in the link below for reference as well.
