Make sure the battery is good, have it checked, make sure the alternator is good even tho you just bought it, one other thing to check is the wiring to the alternator. Make sure the fusible link is not burnt out and check the wires at the plugin, wire may have broken inside the insulation, check for continuity at the plugin.
