Charging Problem

I have an 2002 ford ranger edge with a 3.0L and my battery light came on so i replaced alternator a month ago with a brand new one not remanufactured and i replaced the battery like in august. Yesterday my battery light came back on and i tested it and said no voltage. I looked at the fuses and they are fine and made sure the alternator was connected good. What could it be i have ordered a motorcraft alternator thinking i got a dud alternator from advance auto.

Warranty time
If it's only a month old take it back to Advance and have them test / replace it.

Your description is confusing. What said no voltage?

Take the alternator to a auto parts store that can test it. If it is toast, warranty replace the thing.

Check your wires going to the starter! I know it sounds weird but on my Volvo Big truck the other year I went thru three alts and 4 sets of batteries before they found the real problem. A bad connection on the starter, so the company spent a few grand to fix what ended up being a freaking bad connection.

PS.
That truck's volt gauge was going from 9 volts up to 16 volts. It had no rhyme or reason for the way it did it.
