Check the alternator belt tension. A tensioner is used so there is nothing to adjust but if it is loose the tensioner may be bad. Check the charging system without load and under load. You might still have a problem with the internal voltage regulator, I've seen them pass the freeby tests an auto parts store will do yet still be bad. Lastly and maybe most important, check all the connections and battery terminals are not loose or corroded, and not just at the battery but at the alternator too. You can check the following fuses as well, H–Fuse: ALT 120A, AM1 40A, AM2 30A, Fuse: ENG 7.5A, IGN 10A.

I have checked the alternator on the car the output is 14v I haven't figured out how to check the fuses cause I can not get them out of the fuse box
