Sounds like an alternator issue. I have seen batteries go bad and take out the alternator, so if the battery is a few years old I would replace that as well. On rare occasion I have seen the battery be the whole problem due to a dead cell, and the alternator survives. The test would be to charge the battery and see how well it does take a charge. A healthy battery will gladly accept a high amp charge very quickly. A bad battery will not and actually start to smell. Just be careful with batteries, they seem to not be making them as well as in the old days. If you need repair info or prices, ect , let me know.
