I will be glad to assist you,
Alternator needs to be tested to see if charging properly, it needs to be charging 13.5 volts minimum with headlights on,
These alternators sometimes charge just enough to get by, then at night will cause car system to fail due to lack of voltage.
AutoZone will test alternator for free,
