So, what you're saying is that your car isn't charging the battery since you changed the starter... is that right. If so, my guess is that you accidently left off or possibly even burned out the fusible link between the battery cable and the alternator. If this is the case, that's why it won't charge. So, make sure yoiu've still got a connection between the wire between your battery cable at the starter and the alternator.
