If the battery is only showing 12 volts then its is pretty much discharged and if your chargeing voltage is much below 14.3 then you are not chargeing properly. how was the alternater tested? did the person who tested it know what they were doing? Take a voltage reading at the alternater output post and compare it to the battery should be the same if the wireing and cables are good. My money is still on the alternater
