If the battery is good, the car should start and run until it discharges below 10 volts, so the alternator doesn't come into play here yet.

You nee to check the battery cables for being tight at both ends and without any corrosion.

You then will check power in and out of the power distribution box under the hood if all else was good.

Thanks, Ron
