Battery not charging

Hello, I have an '03 eclipse, and I am having some electrical problems that I can't figure out. I noticed that my headlights and dash lights were flickering (getting dimmer and brighter). I went to autozone, and they said my battery wasn't being charged. Also, they said that the alternator was getting too hot. I had recently replaced the battery and alternator. I took the alternator off the car and had it tested at autozone, but it passed. Does anyone have any idea why the battery wouldn't be charging when the alt and the battery are both good? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I had a 86 z28 with same problem. Of course I checked and replaced alternator, battery, and terminals. After car was good for a day or 2 than the problem came back. Then my neighbor told me to test the starter and it was bad. He said if the starter is bad it will pull more juice to spin it. Try testing the starter.
