Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Subaru Outback with 170,000 miles died completely one night in March, we replaced the altenator and it ran ok for a couple of weeks then brake and battery light came on, replaced altenator  again and lights never went out. The car left me on the side o the road again. Any ideas what else could be wrong.
