Last November my battery died on me and I had to buy a new one. Now y car won't start again. Is it the battery, which I have only had for 6 months, or is it something more serious? I got a boost yesterday and it started just fine and I drove it around for a few minutes to warm it up but now it won't start again. I also opened the good yesterday and noticed the cords are still connected to the battery but somehow the battery itself has come loose from the screws and that I was able to pick up the battery while still connected to the cords

Have the battery load tested to see if it can hold a charge.
Have the alternator checked for output as well. My bet is the alternator has failed.

Have the battery hold down re done so it is secure

Okay, thanks. How much would a new alternator run me?
