Yes I believe you hit the nail on the head. While investigating your alternator take a good look at battery and cable connections too. But my two cents says you have your answer at the alternator.
I hope this may have helped,

Could still be the alternator. I've had replacements go bad in days. You can have the alternator tested for free at most auto parts places.

Alternator. Have it tested with a voltmeter while on the car and running. Or take it off and have it tested. The current to run the car and the accessories is from the alternator when the engine is running. The battery light coming on alerts you that the alternator is not doing its job.

It's possible your alternator has failed. Remove the alternator and have it tested at your local parts chain. Please let me know if you need instructions or have any other questions.

My panel lights are too dim and won't brighten. I checked all the fuses and they are all working fine. I turned the dimmer knob all the way to the right and they still won't brighten. When I first turn...


Your alternator may be going bad. Once the car is running, your battery has done its job and the alternator takes over. The alternator is responsible for firing the plugs, running your lights, your radio, your heater/AC, and anything else electrical, as well as keeping your battery charged. If the alternator is on its way out (or even has a less than good ground), you may experience some lights dimming, or even choppy radio signal. If the alternator is already gone, and your car is running off of the battery full time, you will also get the dimming you describe, and sooner or later the car will not even start. Take your car to an auto parts store (Advance, or Auto Zone, etc) and ask them to test your alternator. This is a free service.
