So, you did not have the welding done with gas, but with electric arc.
Anytime a person welds on a car with anything electric, the car's owner must disconnect ALL things electrical, or everything may be toasted, as yours is.
The alternator is a self-contained unit, and it either works or doesn't.
The alternator has the voltage regulator inside as a part of it.
I believe you may be needing an ECU, which is the brain of the car, however, because of the damage caused by an uninformed person, your car may never be fixed, because some wires may have shorted out (melted together) inside on of the wire harnesses that are all over your car. I think the best you can hope for is that it runs, and the alternator charges the battery as needed. I think the alternator is supposed to put out about 13.1 volts.
If you look up an ECU on e-bay, you will notice there are repair services who can repair your ECU. I have used them several times, and this has worked well for me.
Be blessed.

You don't say what kind of welding you had done or where but I can tell you that if it was a MIG welder or an ARC welder and they didn't take the appropriate precautions this could very well messed your car up and ruined the ECU.Your alternator should be charging from 13.2 to 14 volts.Check the ground on the battery to make sure you have a good circuit. The fact that the car will start is a good thing.I would go looking for a bad connection or wire controlling the gauges.The voltage regulator is in the alternator,it controls volts output. I'm jumping around here a bit but I empathize with you in a big way.Go back and double check everything.There must be a fuse to the instrument cluster,or perhaps a bad wire. good luck
