2001 toyota solara - The car will not start until I put a battery charger on it,

(2001 Toyota Camry)
The car will not start until I put a battery charger, then starts normally. Soon after I remove the battery the engine rapidly shuts down. On the road the first indication was I put on a turn signal and the tachometer went up and down with the blink of the turn signal. Then the car would not accelerate and eventually shut down. Got it started again and nursed it home. Replaced the alternator and battery about 2 years ago.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Nothing
How long have you had this problem? Started yesterday

Theses are classic symptoms of alternator failure!

May have damaged battery as well.

**Hands-on** testing will be required.

Good luck!
