loud your battery again and see if ti keep running it down--if yes check the battery loading size it suppose to be around 12-13.
less then 9-10 in most cases it's the alternator cause another thing is your battery could be out of work

Check the voltage on the big line of the battery terminal cable running to the starter it should be 12 volts with car off. This line is attached to the big nut on the starter, and also check to be sure the small black cable is connected to the bolt that holds the starter, the long thin bolt going to the starter towards the transmission bell housing. On some models of the cavalier there is a module mounted on the front of the car to fix a defect. If you face the front of the car this module is near the battery on the right and has one small bolt, it is extremly small, which is in the middle. Unplug this module and check it with a multimeter, I think pins pin 34, and 35. The module has a diagram pointing to the connection point for checking it.I would not change your alternator when you have lights and everything else but the starter is working.

If you have a volt meter check to see if there is a drain on the battery when the car is off, you can then pull each fuse to see which circuit is causing the draining. Sounds easy, but I have also seen cases where somone left change (a penny) in the cigarette lighter causing a short cirucit.
