Hi, thanks for writing in. This is a common issue related to what is called a voltage regulator which regulates the charging supply to the battery from the alternator. When this is not working properly, it may undercharge or overcharge the battery. If you would like help, consider having an expert automotive technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to inspect and diagnose this issue for you, and make or suggest any repairs as needed.
