You need to check if the voltage from the alt is getting to the battery. Check that first using a volt meter. With the engine off, the battery will produce around 12 volts. When you start it, you should see 14+v at the battery. If you don't check the fuseable link between the battery and alt. If it is bad, it won't charge the battery.
