I have an identical issue... I was out last night and my altinator went out so i replaced it... I started it up and drove to auto zone and my fule pump cut out then picked back up then the car died i replaced the fuel pump and sprayed brake cleaner in the intake because it works the same as starting fluid and it cranks but WILL NOT START. so i checked the rotor checked for spark and both were good... I also changed the fuse but not the relay i put plugs in 2 weeks ago... I need help before i send it to scrap yard

My car has a alarm that if the battery went dead it would not start my car I took out the alarm and bypassed and now I have a toggle button my car will crank but not start the battery was completely dead .I'm chargen my battery my thought is since my battery was dead for 3 days it might have drained the power on my alternator if I have a fully charged battery and get a jump start will my car run

I'm asking you for the answer
