You could have a bad electrical connection perhaps at the at the battery, alternator wiring or fuse box but is quite possible that the alternator if it is a rebuild or re manufactured alternator was not rebuilt very well. Cheaper alternators often have a high return and failure rate to auto parts stores. I asked our parts supplier about a certain brand of alternator he told me they had a 20% return rate and had stopped carrying that brand.
