1997 Chevy Astro 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
I got a new alternator and when I start the van and disconnect the battery the van turns off. What else could it be?
have the same problem?

Make sure there is full BATTERY voltage on the big wire on the back of the alt. If there is, make sure the other plug is seating all the way. There's usually a big fuse, probably 75amp or higher, that could be blown. Look in the underhood fuse box and see if that fuse is blown. It shoud say 'generator' or 'alternator'. Start there and get back with me.
