take alternator to a parts house and get it bench tested and top offf the brake fluid


You do not have to remove alternator from vehicle to have it tested it can be done right on the vehicle as long as the vehicle is running.

I went to AutoZone and had them test the alternator and starter. They said both were good. However, neither one was good. The starter was for an automatic and the alternator was shorting out. Replaced both and the car issue of that time was resolved.
