If your battery can hold 9.6 volts and higher while cranking the engine over while the ignition system is disable for 10 secs, the battery is okay.
If there's a SHORT in the electrical system it will have over 0.30 milliamps which is the normal draw for devices that has memory.
Costs labor time to check charging system and to remove and replace alternator is 1 1/2hr. Alternator $195.00. Total roughly at $250.00
