I've bought new batteries before, only to have them turn out to be defective. Run the car by the battery shop to have it tested, and if it checks out OK, then run it by the alternator shop to have them check the alternator output.

My car turns off while driving ? now it won't start


Let us assume you have not run out of fuel and the fuel gauge is ok.

Normally cars do not stop suddenly if battery is the issue. Could be the alternator but you have installed a new battery. The fuel system seems to be the problem. Could be blocked fuel pump.

So what do you have for voltage at the battery? Sounds like the alternator went bad. There should be around 14 volts at the battery with the engine running. Anything less and the alternator would be the first thing I suspected.

most probably based on your description your battery has completely failed-may have a sudden, internal short. Put a voltage meter on the battery posts, if it is less than 12 volts, you need a new battery. A digital meter only costs $15 at any decent hardware store or retail auto supply store.
