Question

Dash lights started to fade and it stalled out. Gave it a jump and it started so I took it to have a charging test done at Autozone. They said I had a bad alternator. Replaced it and later car stalled again. Went ahead and bought a new battery and car ran all day. Next morning it wouldn't start. Battery was dead,any ideas of what is going on?

    have your charging system checked again it could be a bad alternator... if it is ok then you probably have a short somewhere that is draining the battery

    Just had the new alternator checked and it passed. checked all the fuses and all the cables look fine,they don't look corroded. could the starter be draining my battery somehow,even though it starts the car when I turn the key?
