Replace battery, and then take vehicle to your local shop that will do a charging/starting system test to make sure the battery was the only failure!
Good Luck !

I just replaced the engine in my pontiac g5 started it runs fine but battery goes dead... alternator and battery is good and grounds look good to me where could it be drag in power?

Connect a amp meter in series at the + terminal on the battery and note the drain. there should only be a small drain caused by the clock ECT, Check for a light staying on in the trunk or glove box. Are you sure the battery is holding a charge?. connect a volt meter across the battery terminals and start the engine. voltage should be around 14 volts if alternator is ok.

Can alternator put out 14.2 volts but not enough amps to charge battery and turn off dattery light?

Yes and no.
It sounds like you have a wiring problem.
The alternator output could be 14 volts and only one or two amps, but that would be enough to kill the warning light. Its more likely the alternator is charging but the current is not reaching the battery.

connect a volt meter across the battery with the engine running must be around 14 volts, if not alternator or regulator at fault or drive belt loose . connect a amp in series with the battery with every thing switched off the draw must be less then 1/4 amp ,if not check for lights in trunk a glove box staying on.

Hi after I run my truck for a while and turn it off, lets say to get gas. When I try to start it it slowly turns Over for about a second then stops. Almost as if the battery is dead but its not the...

Have the battery load tested to verify that it is still good. Using a volt meter check how far your voltage drops at the battery while cranking. It should drop no more than 9.5 volts. If it goes lower then its the battery. If that is ok, then check your battery terminals for corrosion. Clean then anyway. Once you fire it up again check your charging system by hooking up a volt meter to the battery. You should have anywhere from 14 to 14.5 volts. if it is less then your alternator is bad.
So to recap while cranking your battery must stay above 9.5 volts. Once running, the alternator should produce 14 to 14.5 volts. If that all checks out then you have a starter that is breaking down and needs to be replaced. Good luck!

Went to start the car last night and it would not turn over. the lights and radio works but when i turn the key there is a sound that goes click click click and thats it ? Do not know what it could be ?...

It is probably the battery. Try this test, turn on your headlights, and watch how long it takes for them to dim. My car makes this sound when the battery is dead. They should stay illuminated at normal brightness for at least ten minutes. Take a multi meter to the battery, see if the voltage is too low.

I was driving along in my 1998 ford ranger XLT(manual) and i noticed the battery light came on. soon after that the radio and all dash lights went dead. after that the truck just died. my brother looked at...

It could very well be the starter after you get the starter fixed if the battery light is still on while the truck is running you can use a volt meter to check the voltage on the alternator or if you don't have a meter you can disconnect the pos post from the battery if it stays running the starter was the problem if it goes dead your alternator is bad i hope its not but that's what it sounds like to me. The starter does complete the circuit but when the alternator goes it will drain the battery losing one function at a time until she just gos dead. Hope this helps

Sounds like you have a bare wire somewhere that is touching metal and grounding out. Probably a starter cable. Try unhooking the battery, check the voltage of the battery, then hook the cable back up, watching for sparks from the cable. After you get it hooked back up, check the voltage again. If you see a small spark, it is normal. If you see a big spark, you have a wire that is touching something it is not supposed to.
