May I suggest that you drive your car to one of the major auto stores and they can and will check your alternator for you to make sure it is good/bad.These places like AutoZone do this all the time. They do not charge for the check out. (Of course they are hoping that if you need a part you will buy it from them.
One other suggestion. If you do need a new alternator, get a rebuilt one. It is cheaper and most always comes with a warranty.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please take a moment to give me a rating

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.
