Before deciding to change the alternator, have the battery recharged and load tested. If it's good, then check the alternator for proper output and drivebelt for any slippage. Check back if you need any more info along the way

The blower motor resistor is shorted out.
Replace the blower motor resistor. With all these electrical problems poping up , I hope there is nothing causing this

Not enough power from battery (bad connection).
Disconnect each battery cable and clean cable clamps and battery posts. The dirty stuff is a "ressistor" and gets hot; battery looses starting amperage.
It should start up ok. No additional things need to be done for this.

The positive battery cable is prone to corrosion at the battery end. Many times, the connector will completely decay loose at the cable end. Replace the cable if that is the case--don't use a clamp-on replacement terminal as they are prone to failure. Make sure the negative cable is in good condition as well. Check the connector interior for a bright lead surface. Check the tightness of both cables at their far end terminals. Hope this helps!
