Your bolted wire should have 12vDC, if not, check your main fuse under hood. Car have stereo? possibly poped fuse, or jumped started can do that too. The other connector at the Alt. goes to the PCM/BCM. Isolate the connector and test for a 5vDC reference at plug(not shure what wire w/o diagram). No reference voltage at alt = bad signal from Body Control Module. That is bad news. That will involve tracing wires, new module, crying, money gone, ect...

head to the local auto store and just grab a battery cable or hit up a wreckers and take a double end out of a car. It has to be main power thickness. The main reason this part burns out is because its just simply 2 wires pressed together with shrink tube. Replace it with a solid one piece wire and you won't have the issue any longer.
