86 328i charging problem

I replaced the battery with a brand new one. Charging system was still acting up so I up grated to a 140 amp from a 80 amp. It work fine for about 1 hour as my son was taking his beamer to the car wash and on the way back the battery kight came on. He brought it home and I checked the charging system and it was not charging anymore. any ideas or maybe a faulty alternator. kinda cluless and I have been working on cars for about 15 years.
Thanks
Rob

Probably should look at the alternator and voltage regulator.
