Try a new battery. We're the used batteries tested at Autozone?

Yes, the 2nd battery was, which is the one that is in it now and the alternator failed. So I returned the alternator they checked it before I left. The one thing that is different this time with the 2nd battery and alternator is it won't stay charged at all, I put the battery charger on and it starts and soon as I take them off and shut the car off it battery is dead again... .the battery gauge will not move from L...
