Sound's like a charging system problem have you had your alternator tested?If not go have it tested let me know what you find.

The starter ground's thru the engine block it bolt's to that's why you don't see a ground wire. So does the battery die while the engine is running?Or while the engine is turned off and sitting?

If it dies while driving then there has to be a charging issue some how. Maybe when thing's get hot after running a while You will need to test the alternator when the battery start's dieing. Do you have a multimeter to test the charging output at the battery when the battery start's dieing.

So if you charge the battery and start the car while idling and check the voltage at the battery it only reads 12.4 volt's?
