AFTER PARKING A WHILE MY CAR WILL NOT START, I HAVE TO JUMP START IT. I REPLACED THE ALTERNATOR YESTERDAY BUT IT DID THE SAME THING TODAY.

2001 Volvo S60 • 147,000 miles

I had taken it to Autozone and they said that the alternator was only giving enough charge to drive the car but was not charging the battery, so I replaced the alternator and today went to start it gave me the same problem and I had to jump start the car and only then it started. The watch resets to nothing, the ac will not turn on until I jump start the car.

Check the battery, check the voltage at the battery with the motor running.

Start from there
