95 Riviera... okay so I start  it up and I noticed the battery
light came on  I hit the gas pedal couple times in the light
went off but while driving I notice it kept coming back on
and eventually the car died. now I tried to jump in a couple
of times it died but while the car was in on all of a sudden

tried to jump it again and now tac meter was not moving  
at all while eingine on in park the car then it died again can

battery tested they said it is showing 12 volts but the
battery is no good.

Since the battery failed the load test I'd replace that first since you know it's bad. If the problem persists remove the alternator and have it tested. HTH. -Jim
