If the battery and alternator test OK in the vehicle; have a free charging system test at any local auto parts store - then look for these issues;

weak / worn drive belt,
weak / worn drive belt tensioner,
worn idler pulley

It is recommended to replace the belt and all related components together as a kit - at the same time.
