It may just be the battery. If it won't stay charged and is more than 3 years old,it may be a somewhat rare early battery failure. Put the new battery in or charge your old one, and check the voltage across the battery terminals with it running. That should solve the alt issue, if you get 13 or more volts. Call,stop by or got to web site of an Auto Parts Store for a price. The alt can go from $150 to $450 depends on application

Problem with alternator for 2005 Ford Focus.

Yes and no. Depending on conditions and idleing time that can determine life span. Also if battery is or was weak, belt misadjusted, did oil or anti freeze ever get into it. As you can see there are many factors in determining the expected life of an alternator. As a rule or guide line most will start going at around four to five years. Hope this helped answer your question, but electrical parts are the hardest to gauge.
