Had the alternator checked 3 times, Passed all 3 times, New battery installed. But the Battery light is still on?? also im leaking a ton of coolant on the drivers side of the motor near the cat/starter area (running down side of block it looks like) i replaced ALL of the heater and radiator hoses and still have the leak!! any help or direction would be great! thanks guys!
Battery light: Check the green fusible link that connects the alternator and battery (splits off of the positive cable near the battery). They sometimes get corroded in two from battery acid. Otherwise, check all connections of battery, alternator, and PCM. A real simple check is to measure the voltage at the battery with the engine running. It should be above 13.5 volts with the engine slightly above idle. If lower than that, then the problem is in the charging or in that alternator-to-battery connection.
Coolant leak: Is the metal pipe that connects the coolant reservoir to the thermostat housing corroded thru? Also, the short (3-4" long) piece of heater hose that makes the connection of that pipe to the thermostat housing can give problems.

Do you know how to check for codes?
Turn the key to the ON position three times and the third time, leave it in the ON position.
The codes will show in the odometer display;
first a line of dashes, then the codes followed by " done ".
its not throwing any codes,but this conversion has neen a 6 week $2000 nightmare, so i think im just gonna park it and say **** it. id rather throw more money that i dont have at a beater then to keep working my fingers to the bone on this p.o.s. mos. def. at my witts end right now!

P1496 (M) 5 Volt Supply, Output Too Low
5 volt sensor feed is sensed to be below an acceptable
limit. ( < 4v for 4 sec ).
Aren't you the guy that did the engine swap and hooked up the electrical wrong and fried some wiring? If you haven't checked the charging voltage at the battery as Peva outlined then there's really no point in going further. I'm going to bet you fried the PCM and some wiring or more.
alright guys the volt meter is reading 13 i got the care started and driving the sensor wires that is on the the top of the ac compressor was pintched and shorting out the system. but the battery light is still on??
