Take it to a dealer or a local shop because it sounds like you have a wiring problem. Try this first, start the car and remove the positive battery cable and if the car dies it is your alternator or a wiring problem, if it does not die that it is more that likely your battery. take your battery into advance auto parts or auto zone and have your battery tested. i would do the same with my alternator also.(Just to be safe)

2006 Ford Tarus Over Charging from Alternator

Could be a pinched wire that did not show up when new. May have worked thin over the years.... Though to locate at times..... Bulk head headers can be a culprit, any where a wire passes through or over metal parts. Check for corrosion near battery terminals and alternator as a corroded connector can be "seen" as a resistance to the alternator and it will output more amps to compensate.....

Alternator problem

Buy a OEM alternator, preferably one from the dealer. Many alternators found at parts stores are rebuilt used ones.
