drop.

thinking it's the alternator, I swapped it out. that's not it.
all the other system works, it's just the fact that alternator won't charge.

I hate to say it, but the new alternator could be bad right out of the box. If have a multimeter, set it to volts DC. with the engine running, you should have 13.5-14.5 volts. if not then the alternator doesn't work. if you don't have one, the auto parts store can test it. I have had this happen.
