At least you have a meter and know how to check! First at idle with a load on the Alternator, headlights and rear Deicer ON read output to battery terminals 15 volts+ or somethings wrong..Check all the connections and ground cables. Next don't move on until you have the alternator function corrected(follow the charging circuit) after that you can chase... or check window issues IF needed. Preform a voltage drop on all the #2 gauge and #4 wires. Regards
