Have you had the alternator tested? New or rebuilt alternator? I know lots of people (it's happened to me as well) who have gotten rebuilt alternators that were either bad out of the box or failed within the first few miles.

Thank you very much for your response, yes I too thought of that but as of dark thirty last night no I haven't but that mAY BE IN THE CARDS.
What would really be nice is a wiring schematic of the charging system to eliminate the possibility of an unknown fuse, breaker, or link.

FYI, the new alternator was bad, and then the next one was, then the next new (not rebuilt) one was bad, finally the 4th one provided which has a lifetime warranty was good. This experience has caused my not so mechanical head to spin. The salesman at NAPA was supposed to have conducted a alternator test prior to it leaving the building but his laziness cost me plenty. Evil or Very Mad
