Verify the new alternator is ok, have a local auto part store test it for you. a lot of rebuilt alternators are faulty out of the box. If Ok, time to check the wiring.

If the alternator is good, check the bigger wire from the alternator for continuity, there probably a fuse-able link in the wire that may be burnt out.

What it the wire is new, alternator is new and battery? Why is the batt light still on.

I have a G6 that I have to jump off but once I get it running after driving it for a while it turns off and the battery goes dead
