Yes, you need a new alternator, and probably a new battery too since it gave up the ghost while slowly dieing from the bad alternator!

Good luck

How is my battery drainging over night

It's possible your alternator is faulty and not charging the battery

Battery won't stay charged, it is brand new battery, alternator has been checked and it is good, blown BTN 60 watt fuse, on 1994 Mazda Protege.

The 60amp fuse probably is in the circuit between the alternator and the battery. Which would be why the battery is not getting charged.
Someone would need to check for a short in the wiring between the alternator and the battery.

1999 bmw 323i wouldn't jumpstart

No danger involved, just useless. If ONE vehicle won't jump it, there's something drastically wrong with the engine. A charging system will only charge a max of 14 volts when charging a low or dead battery. Over that will hurt something. If you have two vehicles connected to your low battery, there's still only 14 volts going out from them and into yours. There is no reason why one jump vehicle won't charge and start your vehicle. Unless of course the jumped battery is really bad or has a bad/dirty connection. So clean your terminals before a jump. You may not need a jump.

I have a 2000 323i. The battery appears to be strong enough, but it won't turn over. Can you tell me if there is a fuse that maybe affecting this problem?

Have you attempted to jump start your car with either another vehicle or with a strong battery charger? If so, what were the results?

Do you hear clicking when you try to start it? If not, then clean your battery cables and then reattach and try again. If there is clicking, then you need to determine if the problem is in your starting circuit or the engine itself. So you will need to take off the serpentine belt and using a large socket wrench you need to try to turn the engine (clockwise only). If it will rotate, the problem is in your starting or charging circuits. If it won't rotate by hand then the problem is in your engine.

I have a friend who owns a bmw 323i that is a 2000 and it is skipping and he like to know what could cause this problem to make his car act like this..

I would start by giving the car a tune up. New spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, and air filter. Usually a car skipping is caused by needing new spark plug wires and spark plugs.

2006 BMW 323i Passnger Door lock will not lock / unlock w/ remote

Replace fuse 57 (15 amp) then disconnect battery and wait 30 to 45 minutes before reconnecting the battery.

My 2006 BMW 325I had the same problem with the door locks not responding. I checked all related fuses and found #57 (15 amp) was the only related fuse blown. I put in a new fuse and it still would not work. I then disconnected the battery for a while then once I reconnected the battery everything worked fine.

I believe I blew the fuse while repeatedly pushing the unlock button rapidly while walking across the parking lock to the car. I suggest only pushing the unlock button only once or twice.
