Default alternator issues

Ok so recently i had the battery light flicker on for a second or two then go off just at random and for seemingly no reason. Checked voltage unloaded from alternator and it was like 13.1V which was kinda weak. Had parts store use their checker and it said diode stuck open.

So i decided to replace it. Drove fine for a week or two and just today the light flickered again! Got out wiggled the wires on batt and alternator and theywere snug. Drove back home and it never did it. Connections look clean, looks may be decieving?? Any guesses?

Check the main power connection on the side of the engine bay fuse block, same symptoms happen when that becomes loose.
