Have you checked the power going to the alternator? Alternators should get 12 volts at the main stud. a fairly hefty white wire attaches there. that wire has a fuse labeled "ALT" at the positive battery terminal. check that wire for power if it doesnt have power, check the fuse. Aha ! pulled off tape around main power wire and found wires had pulled almost all the way out of the connector, could wiggle wire with meter connected and see voltage fluctuate from 2V up 11V, cleaned and re-crimped and seems fine. Thanks for the Help, I will be back.
