If you have access to a multimeter of some kind check the battery voltage with the engine running at a fast idle or just above it should show about 13.5 to 14 volts if it shows much less there's a good chance you have an alternator problem. When mine played up it needed brushes but guess what... not available exchange alternator was the only option! Gone are the days when a £3 or £4 brush set fixed it.
Hope this helps.
