oaky hold on with the car running you remove (just for a couple of seconds ) the negative battery cable, and the car continues to run? or it shuts down? IF it remains on the the alt is okay if it shuts down then yes its the alt. Also if you car in doubt take it to the nearest advanced auto parts (the can test if the alt works with it in the car, by plugging up to the battey) i experienced simliar problems, it was the NEW battery it was a dud so check the battery again
