alternator. Check voltage at battery with engine running and jumper cables removed. Voltage should be at least 14 volts. if not, replace alternator. If you don't have a voltmeter, remove the alternator and have the parts store test it for you. Let me know if you need instructions or have more questions.
that is not a problem follow the steps below
Things You'll Need:
Belt tension gauge
Socket wrench set
Determine which alternator your Dodge Intrepid will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Intrepid's engine. Models produced after 1997 are equipped with a 2.7 L EER, 3.2 L or 3.5 L EGJ engine.
Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench and remove the lower plastic splash shield. Drain the transmission fluid and disconnect the lower radiator support.
Loosen the "T" bolt, pivot bolt and drive belt adjusting bolt with a socket wrench but do not remove them. This will allow you to disconnect the drive belt.
Loosen the terminal nut for the alternator so you can remove the B+ wire. Disconnect the circuit plug for the alternator and remove the pivot bolt, using care not to lose the spacer. Remove the mounting bolts and the alternator assembly.
Install the new alternator assembly by reversing the removal procedure. Tighten the terminal nut on the alternator to 89 inch pounds with a torque wrench. Use a belt tension gauge and socket wrench to torque the "T" bolt until the tension on the drive belt is 120 lbs. for a used belt and 180 to 200 lbs. for a new belt.
Use a torque wrench to torque the pivot bolt and 10mm mounting bolt to 40 foot pounds. Torque the 8mm mounting bolt to 30 foot pounds.

If your alternator is going bad the battery indicator light will come on your dash. I did the same thing before thinking my battery was bad and buying a new one. Turns out it was the alternator. Hope this helps..
Attachthe alternator to the support bracket. Tighten all bracket andalternator (except for the wiring nuts) bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).Install the B+ terminal nut and wire and tighten to 75 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
Install the drive belt onto the alternator pulley. Make certain that the belt is seated correctly on the pulley.
