Yeah i think especially check the terminal are clean and you have a good connection there, i did exactly the same thing and found that it was actually dirty or not well connected terminals, i probably didnt need to buy the battery at all.

Check the alternator is charging.
Check dash indicator 'BAT' lamp lights when Ignition on prior to starting motor,
Battery terminal voltage should be 14.0 - 14.5V with engine running and headlights on.
Ensure battery terminals are clean and firmly attached - ensure chassis ground is properly connected.

Car wont start just put a brand new alternator and battery


I would check to see if the cable connections are clean and if the starter has voltage. You need to know if the courtesy light is running the battery down, or if you have a different problem.

My 1998 isuzu will get jump started but wont hold the charge i thought after it runs for a couple of mins it should recharge it self wats wrong snl


If the battery is bad it will not hold a charge. Have your battery checked a the local parts house or your mechanic. Also have the charging and starting systems checked to insure they are working properly. Battery should have a reading of about 12.8 volts, alternator should be putting out between 13 and 14 volts. Starter should not draw to many amps.

Replaced battery and alternater tested fine but car will not start


It is very possible that you need a new starter. If the engine wont even turn over like its trying to start then its the started. If the engine is trying to start but wont then its probably the fuel pump.

Won't stay running


I am guessing that you put in a new battery drove it for a day at most and went out the next day and it wont start. Well if this is true then you will need an alternator, your battery is not being charged. Your car can start a run without this but you wouldn't get that far and eazy way to figure this out is either charge your battery or have a friend jump, be sure to let it charge for 3-5 min. before trying to start.
If it starts than remove the jumper cables and let the car tun for another 2-3 min and turn it off. If you cant restart it than you will need a new alternator
