IF battery is good. IF alt tested OK. But still not charging, it may be the voltage regulator. U may need 2 buy a rebuilt alternator and replace the whole alternator. Check with your local auto parts store. Google UR car make/model and altenator and voltage regulator 4 mo specific help. Many public libraries provide free web access if that's an issue.

I put a new alt on. Doing the same thing

Turns out it was just a bad ground and it killed the battery
