Use cluster test to see if it's battery, alt, or both. The alt isn't a charger, so if you've had a bad battery for a while, the alt could go bad.

Voltage off should be around 12 V and on around 14V.

Your starter isn't an issue at all.

I'm thinking just battery, but you need to check the voltage to begin.

Search Cluster test.
