Your car has a warning light for the alternator,for one.and most of your garages will test your alternator for free if you are their customer.If your alternator is working properly the alternator light on the dash will light when you start the car and then go out all the while the motor is running.

BUY A VOLT METER AT ANY PARTS STORE PUT THE DIAL AT 12 VOLTS WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING PLACE THE RED WIRE ON POSITIVE AND THE BLACK WIRE ON NEGATIVE IT SHOULD READ AT LEAST THIRTEEN VOLTS TYPICALLY YOUR BATTERY LIGHT ON THE DASH WOULD BE ON IF THE ALT WAS BAD THOUGH

No charge to battery


the starting /charging system is interrelated ....check amp draw of starter...be sure ALL grounds on engine alternator starter battery are clean and tight...also you could have a parasitic electrical leak...disconn neg side to battery and put test light in line..should be faint light for radio and computer..nothing more..if it burns bright you have something drawing power when system is off..pull fuses one at a time to discover where ....good luck
