First of all never remove a battery cable with the engine running, this can cause a voltage spike that can and does fry electronics in your vehicle. This sounds like a main power loss, so check for blown fuses, main fuses and fuselinks. Also does the alternator light come on when you just turn the key on, if it doesn't then that must be repaired as it is part of the alternators activation system. HTH

Tennis, I read this as when he takes the jumper cables off. Not the battery cables.
