Try a jump start. The battery and/or alternator may be bad. How do you know the battery is good?

I have this same problem with my 2006 Ford F-150. I just replaced the alternator a couple weeks ago and had this problem again. I’m going to return my alternator and get a new one, if that doesn’t work I’ll have to maybe change the battery. I can jump start it but it will only run for another 3-5 miles.
