Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help.Clean/inspect/ tighten all battery to starter connections including all grounds. check all alternator connections and have the alternator tested for potential internal problems and voltage regulator problems. It is possible for the alternator to show a charge but give a false reading. If ok take a very close look at the harness and connector pins for corrosion, shorts, opens, or damage. Let me know
