Check in owners manual or go on line for owners manual and check location of alternator fuse to see if it is blown or bad relay.

I had checked them already I forgot and left it out


Check power going to the wire that is screwed onto alternator with a test light should have constant power going to it even with key not in the ignition. If no power may have a fusable like in that wire.
