One way you could test is with a digital multi-meter set on DC volts, and see what the voltage is on the battery when the car is running. It should show 14.5 volts. Otherwise you can go to a shop and they can do a quick test on the charging system.

Charging system should put out 14.5 volts even at an idle.
