"bad regulator on new alt and batteries"

I have a 1997 4wd 5spd. I recently replaced the alternator due to a faulty regulator, it was getting cherry hot. But it was still charging, the new alt doesn't get hot but it also doesn't charge. I just replaced the regulator plug as well and nothing changed.. help!!

Does the battery light come on and then go off when you start it? Cheers!

Re: "bad regulator on new alt and batteries"

check the fusible link at the solenoid. may have burnt it out. other wise verify u have voltages where ur suppose to at the alternator. Don't have my diagrams right now but should have 12v at the main wire then 12 volts from a fuse on one of the smaller wires and on the jumper wire if your truck has that can't remember when that changed. the other wire should be from ur gauge.

Turns out it was just one hell of a coincidence, the 2nd new alt was bad and everything is fine now
