Have you done a regular tune up to the truck?

Alright gentlemen, I didnt take the truck to work today, the misses was going to use it, and then come and get me, 20mins after i get off work the misses rolls in the parking lot with the neon, says the truck is dead no lights no power, she thinks the battery is dead, I think the alternator is dead, Ive done some research and ive come up with a ton of stuff relating to bad idling and a crapped out alternator. What are your thoughts and opinions on this, how can i check to see the condition of the alternator without getting a tow truck and taking it to a shop.

Take the alternator off and take it to the Auto Zone or O'Rielly's. They should have one of those damn fangled test machines to see if it's good or bad.

Way too much done to list and it's also not even close to done
