    You got access to a multimeter? if so check the charge rate out with the engine running, should be around 13.8 volts, then turn on the lights and other consumables and check it out, should be around the same.

    Does sound like alternator.

    Also could you remember to add the vehicle details in the thread title next time as per forum rules please, they have been done for you this time. It makes it far easier for people looking up help for their own problems or conversions.
