Sounds like the same question I already posted a reply to charge the battery get a multimeter to do some testing and I will help you figure it out. Then post your reply to this question and don't start a new question asking the same question again. We need to tested all the power inputs to the alternator the ad alternator probably damaged the fuse or fuse able link to one of the power feeds into the alternator.

You test them with a multimeter or test light do you have one of those? Also which engine do you have?

The only part that sounded anything like bad fuel pump was the only running for 10 seconds. The rest of your description sounded like the new alternator wasn't charging. Glad to hear you got it fixed though also your welcome that's what were here for.
