There is no hidden fuses. Does the charge lite illuminate? Did you remove the Alt and have it tested?

Either the battery or the alternator could be bad even if new. If its a remanufactured alternator, that would be more suspect.

Check the voltage at the battery while the engine is running. It should be about 13.5 - 14.5 volts. If it is, the alternator is good or could be intermittant. If not, have it tested.

Other things to check:
-belt is too loose,automatic tensioner may need to be replaced, if the car has one
-damaged, corrotted, or loose battery cables
-corrossion or rust at the battery cable terminals (remove them and check the insides where it contacts the terminals)
-plastic caps weren't taken off battery before installation
-make sure all connections are tight at the battery and alternator

What was the original problem, was the charge lite on the old alternator.

You PMd me saying when tested it put out 13.4v.should be a little higher.

There are 3 fuses

1 under the hood CHARGE

2 under the dash in the left kick panel- IGN and ENGINE

It's probably best to take it somewhere different to have the parts tested if you're feeling uneasy about the place where you bought them.
