There's ur problem, that plug is what tells the alternator to start charging the battery, those wires are probably brittle and not making good contact. Need to replace that plug and probably a section of the wires from the plug

Well, trt if dealer will sell the plug by itself, they probably sell it as a complete harness and it'll be expensive. U can get it at Junkyard or rigup ur own by buying the connectors at Auto Parts store
