check battery connections are clean and secure also check engine earth lead check connections at back of alternator also using a volt meter check that you have permanent battery voltage at alternator feed terminal the thick wire using volt meter check charge rate should be about 14.5 volts does sound like alternator fault assume drive belt is ok and tensioned
