Check wire connections at alternator. Clean the battery connections. It could be a bad battery also.

Thanks to everyone that gave a suggestion. The negative side of battery was not getting a good connection.

check the alternator where the positive battery cable is connected, possible burned out. If it is do not buy aftermarket, buy the original.

Charging system is not putting out or your battery is shorting out internally.
