Auto parts stores will check charging system for free. Or if you have a volt meter set it for DC and check battery posts with car running with wipers and lights on it should read at least 13 volts or more up to 14+.

On testing if it shows 12v or less than have alternator removed and tested. If good then you may have a wiring issue.
