You have a power drain from somewhere,either an accessory or a diode in the alternator.Take the hot wire off the battery (vehicle running)and see what is still running and that will be the accessory draining power.If nothing shows up then it would likely be the diodes in the alternator have failed.

    They can be repaired so you may want to check wether its easier/cheaper to repair or replace.

My truck is not charging i put brand new battery & alternator on it when i turn it of i need to boost it back up

You need to jump start it next day , is that what your trying to say ? When you turn it off you need to boost - jump start same thing when next day ? It's not your battery or alternator , you have a parasitic draw ! Something it draining your battery , a light is on a control module is not powering down ! You need to hook up a amp meter between the battery negative cable an post to see how much draw is happening ! Then you pull fuse's till the draw goes away ! parasitic draw test Bing Videos

2000 Cavalier 2.2: Put in new starter. 2 days & it

The battery and alternator may have been ok.
You have a fuse or fuseable link between the alternator and battery to protect it. If you have battery voltage at the battery post and not at the alternator post, there is a break in that circuit.
If the battery cable goes to the starter, the alternator wire may go from there and that could be where the fuseable link is.
Fuseable links are special thin wires that act like fuses.

After 2 days the battery dies what is the problem

if the vehicle is being run for two days and the battery goes down, it could be a charging system problem, if the vehicle is not driven in two days and the battery goes down, try having the battery disconnected from the cables while the vehicle sits for two days, if the battery goes down, it is the battery and if the battery holds a good charge , it is an electrical problem.

Put new battery in my fiat brava but it still goes flat after a couple of days

it takes your battery to start your vehicle, once started the electrical power is genereated by your alternator, if your altnernator is bad or going bad the car then relies on the battery for the electrical power, the battery will go down or dead because it cannot sustain a charge.
it sounds like you need to test your alternator and maybe replace it.

Have your alternator checked. Most auto supply places do this at no charge. Multiple dashboard warning lights usually indicate alternator problems.

Battery goes dead when car sits 3-5 days 98 park ave

Obvious that something is drawing down the battery...Put a test light between the negative cable and the negative post of the battery (remove cable first) start pulling fuses till light goes out. That will tell you what system is can then begin looking for the actual problem. If all fuses pulled and light remains on ,chances are you have an internal alternator problem.
