Default 2005 Altima alternater problem

I've had both battery and alternator bench tested and both passed mutiple times. Re-installed them and still only reading 12.6 on both with car running. There is a plug with 2 wires on the alternator. If I am correct they tell the alternator to turn on. If I am wrong please correct me, but how do I test these wires?

Both of those wires should have 12 volts with the ignition on.

So this confirms that my alternator does work, but how do I trouble shoot the lack of 12 volts?

Ok, so I've tried a new alternator, belt, and a tensioner. I still have no power going to the 2-wire connector on the alternator.

Just wanted to update so anyone with a similar problem might benefit. I traced the brown and yellow wire off the alternator plug to the back of my instrument panel. Well while dismantling it I noticed the plug was not plugged in all the way. Simple. I pushed the plug in all the way and started the car. I used a meter to check and everything was working! I've never done work previously in the dash so its kinda strange the plug came loose. Thanks to everyone that tried to help. I hope maybe this helps someone down the road.
