alternator not charging

help please. hoping to get on road after winter, however flat battery. now charged up but when ignition is switched on no dashboard lights. Car starts but have checked alternator and it is not charging. Have checked fuses they seem ok, don’t even know if alternator has a fuse. any advice please. Don’t want to buy new alternator if the answer lies elsewhere. The car is 1992  Roadster.

There is no fuse for the alternator specifically. Have you been through and checked all the fuses in the fuse box under the bonnet and the one under the dash?

Could it be a break in the bulb circuit?

The alternator is , I think, only activated by the bulb circuit.

If there is a break, or problem, in the bulb circuit, then

the alternator won’t work.

Bulb circuit connector into alternator dirty ?
