Almost certainly alternator failing. Assuming the serpentine belt is in place and not loose. You can test alternators easily with a cheap digital multimeter. See link. 14.4 volts should be present across the terminals when the engine is running. Set it at 20 volts. Better to check the alternator before shelling out as they are not cheap items.Source(s): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142814572562
