Yes, sounds like that is where it should be. If you have a digital multi meter, set it on DCV and 00.000 scale. With the vehicle running check the voltage at the battery, it should be 13.8 to 14.7 DCV if the charging system is working. Or just stop at a auto parts store and have the charging system checked.
