yes it is overcharging. have your charging system checked. make sure your gauge is not off. charging voltage for American cars and trucks should be from 13.8 to 14.2 with a good battery.

poor connections to power or ground could cause a charging problem. a voltage regulator could be a problem. depending on the vehicle the regulator could be in the alternator, outside the alternator or in the power control module.
