Buy a cheap voltmeter at someplace like Harbor Freight, for less then $5.
Check the voltage. Doesn't matter where. Can be at the ciragette lighter or across the battery itself.
Should be 12.5 normal.
Drop to 10 when starting, back to 12.5 at idle, and 13.5 when revvved up.
Over 14 volts is bad also
If that is all ok, then not alternator.
Take off battery terminals and clean them, grease them, and while one terminal off, check for current across the gap. With everything off, should be tiny. The radio and clock should be the only things drawing power. Turn on parking lights to see what a real drain should read, probably several amps. If you have a significant drain all the time, you need to disconnect things untl it goes away. Pull fuses, etc., one at a time, looking. Could engine compartment or trunk light, etc. Very last thing I can think of is that I believe this car has a batter heater for cold weather. But it could overheat the batter if malfunctioning. Are batteries going dry?

Battery next to spare wheel at back. No special tool or task needs. Don't forget to check, you have the radio code before do it.
