I had my alternator replaced (with a new one) after my car wouldn't start and began clicking repeatedly when trying to turn it over. During my drive home from the mechanics my lights on the panel dimmed and the same clicking began when I tried to restart the egine. Was it the alternator after all?

It sounds like a dead battery. Was the battery tested? Was the alt tested before it was replaced?

Yes, the battery was tested and we took the vehicle back for a second check. This time we were told that the newly installed alternator was replaced with a faulty so once again they replaced it. So far, so good, but we will see. Thank you for your response.
