Question about Dodge Durango
I bought a brand new alternator brand new battery , my car was giving a jump and the cables were put on there wrong 4 a second , so why come my car will not stay charged , it dies not even out the drive way
Try to check the battery voltage with the engine running. Should be at least 13.6V from the alternator to charge the battery enough.

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

check all the lighting on the car, IE: trunk light,glove box light, light under the hood, any small light make sure they shut off ,check to see if you have a phone charger left in the cig. lighter, radar detector ETC. any of those things can drain a battery over night quick.if you dont find anything wrong then you may have a short somewhere in the electric system... hope this helps you...

are you sure the alternator is good? because it could be tricky ...The only other thing is the wire running back to battery pack to charge battery maybe disconnected

I had the exact same problem or almost 2 years. I kept buying a battery, because I thought that was the problem. I eventually took it to a mechanic and off course the car didn't act up when the mechanic had it for several days. Finally, I checked all of the fuses. It was the cigarette lighter fuse that was blowen. Since I changed that fuse, the car starts up with no problem. It's frustrating everytime you get in the car you cringe when you start it - LOL Hope this helps.
