Those readings suggest your alternator is working properly but your battery is failing. The symptoms of a failing battery vary and can often trigger seemingly unrelated warning messages. Search to see if others have had similar symptoms. Depending on the age of your battery, you may want to just replace it. That may or may not cure your symptoms.
