Remove and clean battery cables , replace bolts. Check for power going to the alt. it will not charge unless is has power in the connector wire. When alt is tested get them to tell you how many amps it is putting out, not volts. 12 volts will not charge a battery unless you have the correct amount of amps. I had a napa alt and had this trouble twice. The guy said it was good it had over 12 volts output, but it would not charge battery. I fixed mine with a better quality alt. from another store.

You have a alternator with a built in regulator and its that is your problem as all alternators 12Volt charge
at 13.5 amps and can run about 12.5 when idleing but as long as it charges around the 14 while driving keep driving till you ger time to get it fixed it will be ok for a few days but get it seen to.

What are you using to "read" the battery? A multi-meter, perhaps? A battery can show 12 volts on a multi-meter and still not have enough voltage to start a car. The voltage will be adequate to operate most electrical functions but inadequate to crank the car. If you hear a clicking sound when you turn the key, the starter is not getting enough voltage.
You should have the battery "load tested." Most auto parts places do this at no charge.

This is usualy a loose wire. Check the earth wire from the batery to the engin and the body. If that doesn't work, check the fuse box for loose conection also have a look under the dash behind the cluster for any loose conections. Good luck.
