what I will suggest that if it comes back is to replace the cable disconnecting it to clean the posts might have made it cause a good connection internally the gear box flexes the cable as it vibrates and can cause internal fracturing or damp gets under the plastic and rots the copper ..

see why I asked where the alternator was tested

a decent 12v dc rated clamp meter e.g.:

can be a very quick fault finding tool in the right hands
