Alternator fault check with a meter but would say the bushes inside have worn out. cheaper to replace the hole unit. put meter on battery with out engine running nothing on. should be a round 12.05 volts. then test again with engine running no lights should be around 13-14 volts fairly steady if it is jumping all over the place then it is defo the altinator. .

My 04 navig batt gos dead batt is new. alt is good

how often do you use it if it isnt a daily driver it could be a clock etc. but if its a daily driver then chances are you have a bad wire the easiest but not so quick is to pull your fuses and hook up a voltage tester to the battery and one by one start to put the fuses back in and watch the tester to see what one is drawing the power other than clock then when you find it you will have to trace the wire checking for breaks cracks corrosion etc.

Acts like dead battery, all instrament lights work, put on batt charger still woturn over acts like dead batt, is there some kind of fuse? or what? help plz

maybe it really is a dead battery. Headlights bright? dim? if the lights are bright and you try to start it and they go out or dim, either the battery is bad, or a bad connection. Try to wiggle the cables at the battery.

Lights flickering

If the light is flickering and not just becoming brighter or dimmer with engine rpm, I'd suspect an electrical short, possibly between the battery and alternator or inside the alternator itself. have the alternator output checked before going further with diagnosis and before it fails completely and becomes more difficult to diagnose.
