There is probably something called a fuseable link that connects to the alternator. It's a fuse/wire that is replaceable.

I'll check my Bentley manual later today.

Yeah there is a fuseable wire but i could not locate it. I charged my battery for an hour cranked it and it started. So if that fuseable wire was bad i don't think the car would start. When it did start the battery light came on and then after a few minutes my abs.asc+t and airbag light came on. There wasn't that much power to my car cause my cd changer wouldn't even work.

If the fuseable link is broken (it sounds like it is), the car will only run while there is power in the battery. I had the same thing happen to an old z24 cavalier like 10 years ago. Once the battery is dead, the car stops running. If you keep a battery charger on the battery while it's running, I bet the lights will stay off (of course, it's impossible to drive like this, but it's a good test).

The fuseable link will probably require removing the intake manifold, as it connects DIRECTLY to the alternator.

OK, you convinced me to walk down to the car to grab the Bentley manual. I'll post the procedure in a little bit.
