According to the Autozone repair help website this alternator has an internal regulator.
The initial field signal is sent through the charge light on the instrument panel. If this charge light/circuit is not working the alternator won't work. The light should be ON when ignition is turned ON and go OFF after the engine is running.
Check to see if the charge bulb is good.
The computer is for monitoring only and should not affect the operation/charging.
