THat might not be a bad idea... however it might not test out bad. THe alternator still might be charging when this happens but just turns on the light. If you get it tested, it may not test out bad.
I will say that alternators are very common for this on these vehicles. I would just recommend to replace the alternator. BUt if you can get it tested for free, might as well and see how it goes.
