Check your electrical grounds dirty grounds may have caused your alt to fail and cause the rest or your electrical to not work correctly paul

Check your underhood fuses along with your grounds... main one can go pretty easily. Sometimes the alternators have multiple ground spots, and sometimes one ground will work better than others.
