Battery holds charge but runs out after about 30 miles. Alternator not charging the system according to the diagnostic. About how much should it cost a shop to buy and install a alternator in a Cadillac Eldorado 2000 etc model?

If the alternator is charging the battery why are you replacing it-could be the computer controlled of the alternator's field generation circuit-

Oops! Cost of repair varies with location-Have the battery load tested could be sulfated
