Try to turn it on then disconnect the red terminal in the barer ,if still running the batt is bad ,if stop working the alternator is bad ,good luck


I had that problem with my 2004 Buick Lesabre,car was running a just quit and wouldn’t start. Found out the 3 terminal screw were loose on the fuse box under the hood.
