It still sounds like the alternator. Sometimes they will charge with no load on them. Have it checked again with your high beams on, radio on and heat on high. Misfire codes you need to replace #4 & #6 coils and spark plugs. See if it is low on antifreeze for the heat problem.You may need a new drive belt and could have been too full of p steering fluid or air in it.

Rich code is usually ECT sensor, too high fuel pressure or MAF sensor. What was the code #?
