Check connection at battery (of course) test alt at positive side should put out 15 volts. After that it's voltage regulator. And I think that's integrated in computer. And I think there's a way around it but I don't know how to do it

I agree^ I can post the rerouting of the external voltage regulator or a single fielded GM alt. They're both here somewhere cant be too many pages back.

The dash and tail lights are on the same circuit so I'd check the fuse. It's made that way so if the tail lights go out the dash goes out to let you know.

The fan happens to sound like another issue that popped up with bad timing.

I am having this exact same issue. New alternator, charged the battery with a charger. Start the truck and about 10 - 15 minutes later my voltage gauge drops to 0 and my check engine light is on and maybe about 15 minutes after that is completely dead. Did you ever figure out what was causing it?
