1983 ford bronco 302 engine car needs to be charged and jumped to start. she will run and drive fine for about 25 min then die and be completly dead. the batt isbrand new the alternator is brand new so are the plugs cap rotar and wires. what is my problem?
also at certain times when i turn on the key the head lights come on and if i turn on the lights,radio,or anything involving using power while the car is running it shuts off imeadiatly and once again is completly dead
Sometimes the plug that goes into the alt is bad most autoparts stores sell aftermarket ones for under $10

Keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.
