I NOTICE THAT MY CAR BATTERY WOULD DIE AFTER A DAY, SO I CHANGED THE ALTERNATOR THINKING IT'S THAT, THAT DIDN'T WORK. THEN I CHANGED THE STARTER AND IT WOULD DRIVE AROUND FOR MAYBE 3 DAYS AFTER BEING CHARGED (10 MILES PER DAY). WHAT CAN THE PROBLEM BE?I H

I changed the alternator and starter and the battery is good, but car dies after a day or two. It'll let me drive around, then after I turn it off, The next day it'll be dead. Also, I check the alternator by removing the negative cable from the battery when the car is on, and it stays running.

Get a battery drain test-something is probably eating up the battery overnite due to a short circuit-
