Did you disconnect the battery before you started to replace the alternator? If you did then it is possible that the anti-thieft system has been activated, your owners manual will tell you how to turn it off. If you didn't disconnect the battery, then it is possible that you have blown a main fuse, look in the power distribution box for those. HTH
