describing is the alternator is probably not properly charging the

Sometimes when a battery in a car goes bad, it also takes the
alternator with it.
Just how ?
There are times when the alternator goes first and
damages the battery because it overcharges the battery and then goes
shorted from overheating.

I'm 99.9% certain it's a broken earth strap. You can usually check easily with a
heavy duty jump lead placed between some good (unpainted) contacts points on the
engine block and car chassis, re-making the connection, unless it's further back
the chain right at the battery (but unlikely).
