Are you just checking output voltage on the alternator and battery? Both should be load tested to determine condition. A battery with a dead cell will show 12 volts, but will quickly die. The alternator may show an output of 12 volts but not put out any amps.

Sounds like it is not charging. Either alternator, battery, or bad connection somewhere.
Check the cables between battery and fender, battery and pdc, alternator and pdc, etc.
