Disconnecting the positive battery terminal while running will turn the car off—this is not a diagnostic test. If you want to test the battery/charging system, get a voltmeter.

Rebuilt alternator?

And besides not being a good test, pulling the battery cable off while running can blow up the various electronics in the vehicle. Been there, done that. I said "can", hopefully it didn't.
