I took it to a local auto store and they tested the alternator and battery and said it was "good". Did they use the VAT machine or just the old fast way the voltmeter.
Have them full field the alternator meaning bypassing the regulator to let it throw everything its got. If it continues the alternator has internal defects if it stops the regulator has a problem.
Could also be the computer not controlling the regulator depends on the charging system design.
Double check all the connections at the battery and alternator.
