Using a volt meter, take a reading from the battery with the engine turned off.
Then start the car, increase engine speed to at least 2K rpm's and take another reading from the battery. It should be higher.
If the battery is not charging, have it and the alternator tested at your local parts store.
If they both check out good, chances are the voltage regulator is bad.
Replace it with a Wells VR715 regulator.
