Do you mean the battery loses power and then engine shuts down due to low electrical power? if so check your connections to the altenator again make sure they are pushed in all the way or tightened completely, then measure battery voltage with the engine running, it should be 13.5v to 14.5v if not it is not working, if this is the case I would return to where I bought it and show them it does not work and exchange it for a new one, just because it is new does not mean it works...hope this helps, let me know

1991 ford escort battery keeps dying


Check and clean and tighten all battery, starter, and alternator connections. Also the battery and engine to chassis grounds. Did you have the battery " load tested" as a good test requires?
Take the battery out and have it charged up. If the alternator is good, you should not have any more problems. But if you need a jump after a few days to start it, then either the alternator or the battery is just not up to par. Have the alternator tested while on the car and running.
Good luck.

This is like the 4th battery I changed, they keep losing power, alternator has been replaced already new not refurbished. Where's the nearest cliff. lol


Hi
Your alternator may not be powerful enough to support your engine/battery consumption. You may have some wire or component draining your battery due to a short in the wiring or internal damage to the component. At any rate,get it to a mechanic that can track down the problem with test equipment for that purpose. Last thing you can change would be the starter.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Check to make sure your battery terminal connections are clean and tight. It is the most common cause for losing power like this.

I have a mk6 1999 ford escort. Huge power drain on battery


Common fault im afraid, the alternator. double check the wiring though as they do corrode, also make sure the alternator hasnt been covered in oil if it is then cure the oil leak first, as this will damage the new one if it leaks in again
