Good Evening, it all depends on which way you would like to go with it as far as cost. You can buy a quality used one from 50-75 dollars, or a new one from about 150-180, and those prices are a little skewed since I do not remember what they go for. As far as labor, as long as you disconnect the battery and have a decent idea on tools and can remember how your serpentine belt goes on I believe you can do it and save yourself some money. Hope that helps you out.
Thanks,
Joey

it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

Check your alternator, and your battery. It sounds like your alternator is not charging and your battery has run completely down.

Car wont stay running even at a idle


It sounds like your alternator is almost done. Thats power distribution right there. If your alternator doesnt work, your car will run for a minute or two on battery power. Then it will kill the battery. If your car starts, its not the injection system, but you might need fuel injector cleaner to just run through your fuel injection system. To check the alternator, get someone to jump your car. leave the cables connected for about five minutes letting the car run. If it still dies, you need to clean your fuel injection system. If it doesnt die, its your alternator. A alternator costs about a hundred bucks.
