Hi there,

This is usually an indication of a ground issue, not always a charging issue. Start by checking the main ground from the battery to the body and the transmission, then each ground you can locate if the main ground is in good shape. What I usually do is remove the grounding screws, then clean the surface and then replace them. There are plenty of them, but if you look in the engine compartment you can see a lot of the main ones that go to the frame of the car. I would suspect one of these to be the culprit.

Also though, have that alternator re tested. You need to have at least 14.2 volts under load. This is with the headlights, the blower and the wipers on. If it's anything less, it's a problem and needs to be replaced again.
