Sounds like the brushes in the starter are bad. Replace starter.


It wouldn't hurt to test your new alternator. Sometimes they are bad right out of the box. Bummer, but it happens. With the engine running you should have between 13.5 and 14.5 Volts at the battery.


We are assuming the serpentine belt was installed properly with the correct routing and tension when you changed the alternator.
