Possible drive belt system or alternator problem. After charging and starting, what lights are on in dash?

IT NEEDS TO BE TESTED FIRST! DO YOU HAVE A VOLT METER? WHAT IS YOUR SKILL LEVEL?
ANSWER by on August 06, 2013
sounds like alternator is shot or you have a bad battery have the charging system checked and the battery load tested
