Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora
Changed altenater lasted one day then killed my battery
Most likely the battery was bad before replacing the alternator. Usually one can cause the other to fail. If you have a bad alternator and it's been charging the battery with low voltage for some time, the new alternator can actually "kill" the battery. If the battery is older, usually I replace it when replacing the alternator.
