Do check the "Hatch Wiring" though. It was my initial thought of why your problems started and I didn't see anyone mention it (odd).
I did see that in another thread somewhere. If you mean the rubber covering connecting the body to the hatch it appears perfect on the exterior. I agree on the alternator so while it may have went awhile I am glad it is out of the way. Thanks.
