Check fuses. There's normally an ECU fuse or main fuse under hood. Now I also remember those cars had issues with ground from battery. Check and clean all ground contacts which involves battery,engine and frame!

If your battery has "juice" (more than 13-16 volts then it has nothing to do with you alternator. Alternator only charges battery car is ruining.
