FORD WINDSTAR ALTERNATOR PROBLEM

2002 Ford Windstar • 150,000 miles

The battery can't keep a charge, have checked the battery and it is good. Doesnt show any codes when put on the computer. Doesnt want to start, turn over. Usually we can charge it and then it runs good for a week or so and then back to not starting
Could it be the alternator

Yes it could be the alternator do you have a multimeter to do some testing?

Your going to have to charge the battery start it up and see what the voltage reading is at idle at the battery?
