Jacked the car way up. Took off the splahguard.
Jumped the F terminal on the alternator and the battery dash light came on.
Took off the alternator and took it to the auto parts shop and put it on a bench test.
Not charging. The voltage regulator in the alternator is bad.
Time to take the alternator back to the place I bought it and have them order a new one.
This time when I get the new one I will have it bench tested before putting it back in the car.
Thanks for the help. Problem solved.
Update:Changed the alternator. Turn ignition on and dash battery light now comes on. Start car and the battery charge light goes off. Alternator is now charging at 14.0.
How stupid to have a system that in some cases when the alternator goes bad the battery charge light will not work. That is the pupose of the no charge light.
