If you have a digital multimeter, you can check the charging system. With everything turned off, take a reading across the battery posts. The generic figure for a fully charged battery is around 12.6 volts. Then start the vehicle, take a second reading across the battery posts, the second reading should be higher than the first, if it isn't, take a reading at the bat terminal of the alternator, see how it compares to the battery reading.
