Answer by Raging Elephant
Charge the battery and do a load test. Should be around 12-12.6 V charged. Hook it up, let the car run for about 10 minutes, and test the battery while the car is on. If the alternator is working, it’ll be around 13-15V. Bad alternator means the battery doesn’t charge while it’s running.
