Angry caddy won't run

I have a 1994 Caddy Deville,V8, 4.9 liter. The car will start and run, but the lights will soon dim, panel will dim and the car will stop running .... I heard that this sounds like an alternater problem ..any other suggestions.. and how hard is an alternator to replace by an amatuer?

You've already been told it's an alternator, that sounds right. Have it tested and replace it with a reman unit if it tests bad. Your also going to need a battery if you keep driving it that way.
