if it charges at 14.4 V, the alternator is fine. If the battery drains overnight, it is probably old or you have a parasitic draw which is a circuit that is shorted and or drawing power from the battery when it is off. What is the voltage of the battery? How old is it?

battery is around 6 months old when it's charged and holding its around 12.3 - 12.5v in morning around 9.5v.

you have a parasitic draw then, check youtube on how to do it yourself if your good with a multimeter

Thanks for your help Jeff
