What should you check if the belt will not turn the alternator after replacing the alternator in a 96 Nissan 4x4 truck?

If the alternator is bolted on too tight on its bracket,then it will cause the alternator to have a "bend" so that the clearance between the moving parts is reduced and the moving parts eventually jammed.

Alternator is weak and needs replacing. Drive belt on alternator can also be slipping due to being loose. Check the alternator output at the battery with the engine running. It should read from 13.5-16 volts DC. Any less and it needs replacing.

Is the battery dead? Check for 12v on the main alternator cable. If no power, check for burned out fusible links between alternator and battery. You may need a wiring diagram to check further.

You possibly have a loose alternator belt or the alternator is weak. Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. It should be 13.5 ? 16 volts. Any less and the alternator is weak and needs replacing. Also make sure the connections at the battery are clean and tight.
