If you have replaced the battery (especially with a non-OBE battery) then it may need to have the battery type programmed into the ECU. If the ECU isn’t programmed correctly then it won’t provide the correct charge. Of course there could be a ton of other causes, bad relay, coroded/frayed wire/ground, alternator, etc. But non programmed battery (if recently changed is a likely culprit.
