Electrical problem
1997 Land Rover Discovery V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

Starter replaced 12/2/09 by dealer, new battery (600 cold cranking amps) 1/11/10. The car still won't start without a jump or being hooked up to an electric battery charger for 15-20 minutes. Landrover dealersays that it's the alternator putting out only 12.5 amps rather than the norm of 14+, therefore wanting to put in a new alternator. I'm skeptical especially since it wouldn't start with a brand new battery. Any thoughts? Thanks

Could be that something is draining the battery or the alternator with the voltage of 12.5volts not increasing to 14.5 volts or better

Or a problem within these areas starter, starter relay, park/neutral switch and ignition switch-blown fusible link/s
