I have just bought second hand car as above.I had a breakdown as battery died on me and I have just had a new alternator fitted and now the car still wont run as the battery is still not charging. The breakdown guy tested the battery and said it was ok and the alternator was faulty. Please have you any ideas?

Could be you was unlucky and got a faulty alternator, could be whoever fitted it. Fitted it wrong. Take it back to them and have them test and replace alternator. If a battery is flat. And needs charging you can't get an accuarate test untill it is fully charged again. It could be the battery is not holding a charge. They should be able to test alternator and battery at the place you had alty fitted?
