The other day I got into my car 1999 outback and my car was dead. It would not turn over nothing. We jumped it and it died again right away. After getting it home and decideing it was the alternator, so I took that out and replaced it with a new one, drove it for about 30 min then the problems returned, I replaced the battery and the idiot light says that the new battery with the new alternator is not charging! Please I need your help!

Make sure all of the wires to your altenator and battery are connected securely, then check that the altenator belt is at the right tension.

If you find nothing wrong, connect a DMM to you altenator to check the voltage...and if you dont know how to do this, Sears checks charging systems for free.
