Your bolted wire should have 12vDC, if not, check your main fuse under hood. Car have stereo? possibly poped fuse, or jumped started can do that too. The other connector at the Alt. goes to the PCM/BCM. Isolate the connector and test for a 5vDC reference at plug(not shure what wire w/o diagram). No reference voltage at alt = bad signal from Body Control Module. That is bad news. That will involve tracing wires, new module, crying, money gone, ect...

Problem was solved issue was the power wire to the alternator and starter burned up and broke apart. replaced it and it works good now.
