Hello and welcome to OOF.I would imagine an electrical test which is quick and easy to do would show if alternator is behaving as it should.Then you can work from there,checking if battery is holding its charge and so on.

Pay particular attention to the power sounder - they have an un-fused supply and can go through a period of battery flattening before finally self combusting and setting fire to the car.

Welcome to the .com

As said, check the power sounder isn't going to give you problems. Plenty of info on this site about them, so you can make an informed choice.  :y
