been having a problem with the oil light coming on. I just had an oil change thirty miles ago. I was driving and it just quit. and won't start'

So recently I experienced some issues with my car where it would shut off while at idle. A mechanic suggested to me the symptoms seemed to point to my alternator or battery. The car has 102,000 miles on it and I was told it is not uncommon for an alternator to need replacing at this milage. Long story short, I replaced both the alternator and the battery. I also replaced my MAP and Crank Shaft Sensors. I changed the oil and replaced my main belt as well. The car currently can only be jump started. The alternator is not providing power to the battery according to my volt meter. I took the alternator back out and to the shop where they bench tested it and told me it was good. The voltage regulator seems to be built into the alternator so I ruled that out with the bench test. I tried following the wires to the battery but the wire bundle goes into the car and I lose the wires from the alternator. Can anyone point me in the right direction about what might be the issue?

All lights work properly until brake pedal depressed, already checked brake switch and works fine. Checked front right signal wire and there is current when brake is applied? With lights on, and when brake applied front right turn signal does not work and right turn back light turns off and signal stops working?

none needed

I just had a brand new battery installed in my car Monday afternoon, drove home and drove to work yesterday and when I came out, it wouldn't start again, it won't even turn over (no clicks, no nothing, just like before). What could possibly be the problem now. (No lights were left on!!!)

It just started yesterday, I was told that there may have been a recall regarding the brake pedal, but it causes the brake lights to remain on, so I have to put something under the brake pedal so the lights will go off.

I have a 2008 Hyundai accent GSL 2 door hatchback, the dashboard odometer section is on a screen. I was wondering if there was an easy way to switch the odometer from KM to Miles?
