Have the alternator bench tested. You may have gotten a defect. Also, check the fuses in the underhood fuse box. Be sure that the battery cable connections, at both ends, are clean and tight. Same deal with the connections at the alternator. HTH. -Jim

Went and go myself a new alternator to a local parts store, after I told him I had a 2000 silverado truck 5.3L vortex motor and he ask me if I had heated seats and all.He figured that my truck needed the 135 amp alternator (the big one) After I Installed the new alternator the battery light was still on and still not charging.... Brought it back the next day and it was another salesman.... I told him that I just installed new alternator and was not charging..... That then he told me that chev will only take the same amperage as the original one or the (ECM or computer will not allow it to run) and only GM or Chev does that... Gave me a 12v 105A n instead and I changed it right there and it works like a charm.....Therefore you can not go for a more powerful one........

    Truck dies randomly as if it's fuel or electrical problem. When this occurs, I pull over place it in park and it will restart right away. It has been happening about once or twice a month.
