Most vehicles today also have the voltage regulator internal to the alternator. Most better auto parts stores will check the system for you at no charge and will be able to verify that the alternator and/or the regulator is bad.

After verifying it's an alternator problem and not a bad ground, you could purchase a rebuild kit for half the price of the cheapest rebuilt. I'm thinking of rebuilding an alternator and would like to know anyone's experience with the rebuild kits.
