charge battery,whats the voltage 12.2 or more.,., start ebgine. check voltage at the + and - posts again..if it is not higher than what you had then the alt is shot...assuming you checked the basic things,clean,tight cables...also could be a bad batter they do short out..this is something you can do at home ..report back..

try your altantor. if its bad it could be causing surges and or shorts in your cars electric system. test your altanatorto see. my best off the top guess. ive seen it happen very much the same in a navagator.
