It sounds like your alternator is on its way out or done already. The car should still run without the battery connected once it has been started with the battery. I hope this helps.

Said alternator was bad


Bad alternator means no battery charge. Run the battery down without a charging means no power and engine will die. Charge the battery and put a meter on it to see if it goes to 14 volts with engine running. If stays under 13 volts with engine running, replace the alternator.

Brake lights stay all time without car being on


So they stay on when the car is turned off with no engine running?
I imagine this flattens your battery?
Or do they only stay on once the ignition has been turned to "on" even without the engine running?
Could be the pedal switch sticking in which case you would simply need to look under the dash behind the pedal and try and "jiggle" the switch, though if they only stay on once the ignition is on I would lean towards a bad earth for the globe socket.

First maybe try and disconnect the pedal switch to ensure that its breaking the connection properly and turning your lights on and off.

Depending how handy you are, you could remove the tail light and run an additional earth for the globe socket.

When i un plug positive terminal from battery the car shuts off plug it back in car starts great.?


Your car will not run without a battery, as you have found out. Without the alternator, a car will only last about 20 mins on a fully charged battery, then it will die. So, you need them both to run. The battery has to stay full at all times, and the alternator keeps it that way. Hope this helps.

Won't stay running


Check the voltage while its running, should be around 14 volts, if the alternator is working right, charge the battery over night, crank it up and pull the terminals off the battery, it should stay running by itself without the battery, if the alternator is charging....sounds like a charging problem.
