Electrical problem
2002 Hyundai Sonata 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

I have a 02 Sonata, I have replaced the altinator 4 times and the battery just recently, It works fine for a few days and then i'm back to having to jump start it everytime I have to go somewhere, Does anyone have any idea what is causing this problem? My battery cables are good, the belt is good, I know it could be a drain somewhere but I havent seen any indication of it.

Do you
have the same problem?

I knew there was a battery drain problem, its been replaced, so has the alternator, Was looking for what you gave me, a place to start looking, would a bad pully or belt cause this problem too?

Thanks so much for the info.
