Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?Also did you have the new alternator tested before you left the store?

So what is the actual voltage at the battery idling?With a multimeter not your gauge.

Also have you had the battery tested and made sure the battery cables are clean and tight?

It shows 12 at full charge. But it discharges til it runs it down. Yes put new battery on it. It still does the same thing.

So at idle at the battery it reads 12 volts?You have a multimeter correct?

Lets get this straight I keep asking do you have a multimeter and haven't gotten a straight answer do you have one?Also to answer your question no thats not what iam asking if the battery is charged.I was asking with the engine idling with a multimeter at the battery cables what is the voltage?
