Did you get the battery checked it could be bad or you could also have a bad voltage regulator thats if it is seperate from the alternator they started putting them on as part of the alternator in the ninetys and eightys on some vehicels.

your alternator is still under warranty get a new one, based on your info thats the problem, just make sure when installing the new one the battery polarity is correct because that is one cause of damaging the alternator, reversed polarity will burn regulator ic, once you have installed the new alternator run the engine on idle remove one of the battery connector if the engine still run it means the alternator is charging, if engine stops check wiring connection

Replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?


First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

Battery and brake light came on ,on my hydia elantra whats wrong


for the battery light, test the alternator. If you have a voltmeter, check voltage at the battery with engine running. Voltage should be at least 14 volts. If you don't have a voltmeter, take the alternator off and take it to the parts store for testing.

for the brake light--may be caused by the alternator problem, but at least check the brake fluid reservoir. If it's low, refill and check the car for leaks at the wheels or below the reservoir/master cylinder.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
