CAR DIES AFTER DRIVING

1985 BMW 325i • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 115,000 miles

I have an old BMW 1985 325i. My car would not
start after driving for a short distance. Last week
I put in a new alternator because this happened
about a week ago. My battery is relatively new,
what do you think can cause this problem. I
had to have a jump start to restart but as soon
as I drive it around, it dies.

Have you tested voltage at battery with car running? Should be 14v range.
