Would have been great to provide a bit more info. Year would have been nice, I only caught in the thread key words by accident.

You most likely have a fusible link blown.

Go to | Repair Guides | AutoZone.com. Enter the year model and other info to get to the vehicle repair guide. Post a diagram or link to the the alternaor electical diagram and I will try to help you.

Get out your DVM or multimeter because you are going to get to do some
voltage checks.
The voltage regulator has 3 wires according to the above diagram.
1.) The black/orange wire is the alternator power feed to the car and should always have 12 volts or more
2.) The yellow/white wire is the power to the regulator and should always have 12 volts or more
3.) Lt green/red wire is the switched power to the regulator and will have 12 volts or more any time the ignition switch is in the Run position.
4.) The White/black wire coming from the voltage regulator will have a variable voltage on it any time the ignition switch is in the Run position. As the battery gets closer to full charge, this voltage will decrease. I would expect that with a low battery, this wire would have the full battery voltage on it.
5.) Notice the fusible link – you should see 12 volts or more on both sides of the link. If you find 12 volts on one side but not the other, the fusible link has burned open.

The one thing that I do not understand about this diagram is the connection between the white/black wire on the alternator to the choke heater. It may be a sneaky way to turn the choke heater off as the engine warms up. However, I would use the DVM or multimeter to confirm resistance between the white/black wire going to it and ground. I would expect to see less than 100 ohms here.


Alternately, here is another solution - a 3G conversion.

I want to measure mine. It doesn't look that tall.

Have you checked for 12v for all of those items at the fuse box?
