Although yours is a 126, my 140 just had the job done. If you read from the multi-meter that the current reads below 14.5 with engine running, your alternator is not pushing enough juice to charge the battery. Without the engine running, the battery should read at least 12.75 volts. Mind you, you should have all "normal" electronics turned on to test the alternator juice, i.e. A/C, radio, lights, .........

One more thing, you can change the "small" voltage regulator on the alternator to isolate the problems. Many have responded that the voltage regulator will fix the issue which is a small investment to pay. I have seen the regulators on e-bay.

hope this helps...
