Check all your connections at the battery, alternator, and starter. All should be clean & tight. Check the wiring at these locations too. Look for breaks, disconnects, and worn insulation. Make sure when the items you mentioned above were replaced that all wiring was re-connected properly. Lastly, check all fuses to make sure none blew when the repairs were being done. HTH. -Jim
