So did the first time you change the alternator did that one test bad?So on the auto parts machine it tests good?If so you could have a blown fuse or blown fuse link. Do you have a multimeter?

Do you have Battery light on with engine running?
If not
Disconnect generator 3-pin connector.
Inspect connector for loose, damaged or corroded terminals.
Repair as necessary and check system operation.
If connector is okay,
Ensure battery ground connections are clean and tight.
Ensure generator mounting surfaces are clean and fasteners are tight.
Clean and tighten as necessary and check system operation.
If no problem is indicated
Reconnect generator 3-pin connector.
Start engine. Backprobe 3-pin connector terminal "I" (Light Green/Red wire) with voltmeter positive probe.
Connect voltmeter negative probe to ground.
If voltage is greater than one volt, replace generator
If voltage is one volt or less, repair Light Green/Red wire between generator and instrument cluster
