If I drive it a short distance, turn it off, and try to start it again the battery is dead.
If I drive it a long distance and leave it sit for hours it is fine.
It has a new alternator and a new battery.
The volts on the battery, while running, is over 13 volts. So it appears the alternator is working properly.
The car can sit over night and start fine in the morning, so there is no drain on the battery. But, if I drive it up the street to the store. Turn it off and try to start it again, the battery acts like it is dead. Once I put the jump box on it, it starts right up.
have the same problem?
