Start the vehicle and using a voltmeter check to see voltage is across the battery, it should be 13.5-14.0 volts. If it is over 14.5 I would suspect the voltage regulator is bad. If it is less verify that the main fuse/alternator fuse wasn't blown during service. If that is good check the tension on the alternator belt as it is probably not tight enough. Most likely this is your cause.
