The battery may not be holding charge. If you drained your battery a few times because of a bad alternator, it is possible to destroy the cells in the battery causing one or more of them to no longer hold a charge. Most batteries are manufactured to be cycled or completely drained 8 times. Other factors such as excessive load and age can decrease that number. You may also have a faulty voltage regulator that can result in overcharging and destroying the battery. Charge the battery on portable charger and have it tested. Also, It is possible that since most alternators are rebuilt they can be bad out of the box.

Check the alternator fuse. When the fuse blows the battery will go dead while you are driving even though the battery and charging system are working perfectly. The block fuse is sometimes bolted in but can be purchased at an auto store. If the after market fuse hose has bolt holes instead of slots , open the bolt holes and create slots so you can slide the fuse into place with out having to unbolt the entire fuse block to install it.

2003 Honda Accord. Dies when I try to put it in drive

you are having a problem with your alternator. the battery has a main purpose to start the vehicle, keep computer memory, and give power to electrical components when the key is in the on position. the alternator charges the battery and gives power to electrical components when the vehicle is running. now when you hit the brakes there was an extra load added to the alternator and if the car died then the alternator is running very weak and needs to be relace.
