CHEVY BATTERY OR ALTERNATOR

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Electrical problem
2003 Chevy Monte Carlo 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 43000 miles

I have a 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo with 43000 miles, this morning I attempted to start it and just heard a click noise, like the battery was dead. I then jump started the car and it started fine, so I drove it for about 10 minutes and then shut it off, I then attempted to start it again and it was dead again. Do you think this is just a bad battery, or do you think this would be an alternator issue?

Hello,

If your are able to jump it and run it for a while it is most likely the battery. You can go by your local auto zone and have them check your battery and alternator, they will do it free.
