alternator car will
run until the battery
runs out of charge

1 Answer


First check if battery and alternator was properly connected; properly tension the bolts for connection. Does the plug properly have all the correct connections within it? Sometimes old parts have metal pieces falling out from the connector. Maybe faulty voltage regular, or there is something in your vehicle that is constantly drawing power even though the vehicle is off.
