Wiring, fuse and or fusible link, bad alternator... we can't rule any of them out so you have to do the work or pay someone to rule them out one at a time

You say the alternator works so I have to assume you have used an ammeter and checked the alternator output at various loads or engine rpm's to ensure it's meeting its peak charging output, am I right? So that means if the battery is not charging then the battery itself has a weak cell and is not charging or you have a loose connection at your battery or the wiring to the alternator itself is bad or not making a good connection.

1997 DODGE DAKOTA CHARGING SYSTEM
OPERATION:
The amount of amperage produced by the alternator is controlled by the Electronic Voltage Regulator (EVR) circuitry within the Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
EVR circuitry is connected in series with the alternator field driver terminal and ground. A Battery Temperature Sensor (BTS), located in the battey tray under the battery, is used to sense battery temperature.
Sensed battery temperature and data from monitored line voltage is used by the PCM to adjust the battery charging rate. This is accomplished by cycling the ground path to control the strenght of the alternator magnetic field.
The PCM then compensates and regulates alternator amperage output accordingly.
If a problem is sensed in a monitored circuit, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be stored in PCM memory and the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) (commonly refered to as the "check engine light") will be illuminated, providing certain criteria have been met.
DTCs can be read using Chrysler's Diagnostic Readout Box (DRB-III) or a generic scan tool.
When diagnosing any problem concerning the charging system on this vehicle, it is recommended that you begin by scanning the PCM for fault codes in order to eliminate certain possibilities and provide a more accurate and timely diagnosis.
If you have any fault codes pertaining to your charging system, please post them in a reply on this page and I will be happy to guide you through the diagnosis process.

I have replaced the battery and alternator on my 1991 Dodge ram 150 pick up and the motor still dies on its own when running and the battery loses its charge. What could be the problem?


If the battery is dying or losing it's charge when the engine is running then the alternator or wiring is defective so it's not charging the battery.

My 2007 dodge 1500 alternator won't charge


Check the battery condition as low battery will not induce the alternator to work. Check belt tension and condition. Place a multi meter in the battery to alternator wire and check for dc and ac current and if you have ac then the rectifier diodes in the alternator have failed.

My alternator keeps going out


The voltage regulator isn't being turned on when it is need

The challenge it to look at wiring diagrams & see what controls it

Jumping a dead battery is a dangerous thing to do

Batteries require they be fully charged before being put
back into service- to continue any testing

If you even jump a car made in the last decade,
you may smoke the electronics

On newer cars you disconnect the battery, to charge
it alone from the vehicles systems

Need to replace


In order to replace it you would have to take off  your inkate manifold. Then the tire gaurd to get to the bolts for the alternator and when you lossen the alternator you have to play around with it to get it through the top. 
I would also reccomend grabbing a haynes manual for your avenger. You can find them on ebay pretty cheap, and you can usually pick them up at your local auto parts stores.
