I have been having and alternator issue. I replaced one and it was putting out 15.84 volts, I took that one off and replaced it with and other that wasnt putting out even 1 volt. Does it sound like I am having bad luck with alternators or, does it sound like there is a bigger problem? Thank you in advance

Try chaging your battery then have it tested, including a load test. It sounds like a bad cell or sulfated.

I did have it on a charger/ tester while I was changing the alternator both times and it tested good.

Have it load tested, you can't test it while it's on a charger the initial load ahsto be taken off of it. If it's reading below 12.4 volts replace it
