Car wouldn't start. I jumped it and it started right up but as soon as I unhooked the cables it died. I replaced the alternator and still wouldn't start without a jump and again would die when cables were removed. Switched out the battery and still nothing. Spark plugs were recently replaced and on the rest drive it kept dieing but started again then the third time it died I was unable to get it started without s jump and unable to keep it going after disconnected

First, charge the battery and make sure all the conncections are good and tight

check the voltage at the battery. It should be 12.6 engine off and 14.5 engine running

Ok, and the voltages? I am looking for them to see if your cables are clean and tight

It's a side mount battery and everything is clean with no corrosion on any of the connectors
