Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The problem you are having may be due to having burned the fuse link wire from the alternator to the under hood fuse panel. Trace the dark green.orange wire from the alternator over to the under hood fuse panel where the fuse link connects and see if its burned. See the wiring diagram in the link below for reference. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it. Check this for me and let me know what you find and we can work from there.
