I am having difficulty understanding your explanation.
When the alternator fails, the CEL would not be staying ON when ignition switch is turned ON. Only the charge indicator light would be staying ON.
When the CEL stays on, either the ECU is faulty or one of the sensors has been detected to be faulty or disconnected. When ignition switch is turned ON, the CEL would blip before staying ON.
Are you able to start the vehicle now?
Did you retrieve the trouble code?
Did the engine overheated when it stalled?
