Question about Cars & Trucks
Did they check the battery where you bought it to make sure it was fully charged? If so, then Re-check your battery connections. Also look for a "fusible link" which is located in the battery cable(s). It is labeled.

sounds like a 12V drain on the system, like a trunk or glove box light that won't shut off.> Could be many. many other reasons why. The way I would find the draining circuit would be to remove the neg cable of the battery. I then would connect a 12V test light between the neg battery TERMINAL and the neg battery CABLE. With a 12V drain the light will shine. I would install into the light a 9V battery powered recepticle to hold computer and radio station memory. Then I remove fuses 1 at a time, then reinstall, at the same time looking for the 12V light to go out. Hope this helps.

There should be a wire that runs from the ignition to the solenoid, check that the wire has power when you turn the ignition key, if it has power the solenoid may need replacing.
Check to see if you have power getting to the distributor and the spark plugs, if you have spark it is possibly in the fuel system

SOURCE: Check charging system
So you have a new alternator. I S IT CHARGING ? If the answer is yes , and the battery still dies, I would say there is a 12 volt drain in the electrical system. Hope this helps
