Angry 208 Alternator Problems

I replaced my alternator and the new unit would not charge, it was a re manufactured alternator so I took it back and got an original equipment alternator thinking that was the problem. The second alternator also would not charge.
I have done all the normal checks on vehicle, battery fine and performs well with drop test, all my earthing good, no obvious chafed wires or corrosion on terminals.
When I removed the plug from the alternator it would work.
Has anyone had similar experience with this? How did they resolve it?

Is the low battery warning light showing on the instrument cluster?

Have you checked with Diagbox to see what the alternator is reporting back to the BSI unit?

Sounds like a control issue and your original alternator was probably fine the BSI controls the charge nowadays.
assume nothing check everything twice !!
