Bot***** *****ne , is the alternator charging? Sounds like it is not! Is Field terminal on the alternator has to be energized when key is turned on, or alternator will not start the charge! Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage before crank and with engine running? Voltage should rise from around 13 volts, to well over 14 volts when running.

If not, alternator is not charging, and the field wire needs to be checked. Or take a jumper wire from battery positive , to the field terminal , to see if the alternator will start charging.
