I suggest you check the voltage being put out by the alterator which should be between 13.5 and 14.8 volts. This can be done by using a multi-meter connected across the battery terminals with the engine running. With the engine stopped the reading should be around 12 volts assuming the battery is in good condition

Also check all the battery terminals are clean and sound including any engine earth straps

I take it you have checked the auxiliary belt hasn't broken or come off
