What's the voltage reading at the battery with the engine running ? 13 to 14.1 volts ? If not, it's not charging .Sounds to me like it's not charging ! Is there battery voltage at the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator ? Does the battery symbol light on the dash work ?

Battery is completely dead. If you have a new battery then I would check your alternator, it may not be charging your battery.

New alternator and new battery but the battery is not holding a charge and I had the alternator tested and the alternator is good.


You need to take it somewhere that can do a parasitic draw test. Something in the car is drawing power from the battery with the key off. You can do this yourself if you own an ammeter. If you do, let me know and I can walk you through the test.

Car won't stay running.


alternator does not hold a charge it simply charges the battery by unhooking the battery you are taking all voltage from computer and car will not run the proper way to test your alternator is use a multimeter and check voltage at battery while car is running if you have 13-14 volts it should be fine.
