If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Sounds like the alternator output is low. Not enough output to charge the battery. Your local advance auto store can check this for free to be sure. It could be the battery not holding a charge like it should. Check it first with Adavance

Make sure all connections are clean and tight, belt is good and have alternator (charging circuits) checked. Sounds like alternator may be defective.
