If truck was running before the alternator change,check all wires to the alternator,and make sure it is grounded.

So I checked ground wiring even put new battery terminal ends on pos /neg and had alternator all good, gauges still do not work and no bus on odameter...

Also checked all fuses , the lumination fuse is good but has no power to it, when i put the obd reader i get nothing...
