I had same problem and turned out my alternator plug kept falling out. ground was good but the plug with the clips was bent and kept falling out. had to make sure it was fixed by someone who knew what they were doing and had to take it to the dealer. charged me $75 to rewire anew plug on, took them one hour. have your battery and alternator tested at local Autozone or AAP

Check the Belt Tensioner. If the Tensioner is not Keeping the Belt Tight it will Drain the Battery Pretty Fast.Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.

it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.
