You had the battery load tested, right? 12.6 volts and its good? Check all connections to the alternator, Clean and tight... along with ALL grounding straps! Check the power distribution box (FUSE) under the hood inspect the High amp Alternator fuse make sure its "good". If these checks don't correct the NO charge issue voltage drop testing on the circuit will be required. Regards

Is it a new or rebuilt alternator? Have it tested at the part store you bought it from, a rebuilt one can be bad out of the box.

yes it is good
