Have you checked the alternator fuse? The regulator needs power from the fuse to turn on the alternator. The old alternator could have blown the fuse.

Disconnect the battery, disconnect the red wire on the alternator stud, disconnect the (2) wire connector on the alternator. Reconnect the battery, turn the ignition to the run position, check both red wires and the brown at the alternator and make sure there is voltage on all wires.
Per your description, I believe you will not have voltage on one or both of the large red wires.
Let me know.

If you have replaced the alternator and the battery has been checked and showed to be in good working condition then the only thing left is either a bad fusable link or cable (negative or psitive) going from battery to engine. You should inspect these cables and there connections. Corrosion on these connections can cause these problems. You also mention that the alternator will not keep car running. It should when you disconnect the negative battery cable while the engine is running.If all connections and cables are good and you haven't replaced alternator then you should do so.

it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

The easiest way to test the performance of the alternator is to perform a regulated voltage test.
