Default Car Won't Start

So about 3-4 days ago my car was stuck in LA with a dead battery the symptoms where that i was driving and all of a sudden the battery and brake light turned on in my dash then a few minutes later as i tried to accelerate the car, the car wouldnt move it was probably going like 2-3 mph but thats it. I pulled over and turned off the car to check for any leaks or corrosion in the terminals but everything was well. I jumped started the car but as soon as i would take the jumper cables off the terminals my car would turn back off. So then i decided to leave the cables on charging for like 5 minutes. Turned on the car and the brake and battery light dissapeared that seemed to have been a fix until yesterday i noticed the lights came on again and went to buy a bettery everything checked out and battery was good alternator was good as well and the lights didnt dissapear. Last night while on my way to work i turned on the car and noticed the lights on again(battery and brake) and soon after the same problem occured the car stopped accelerating and then the battery was drained the car turned off. Jump start wont work and im cracking my head please help thanks

Alternator, it recharges the battery while you drive. If it doesn't work, your battery will drain all the way which is why you had to leave the cables on for 5 mins to recharge the battery. Then you bought a new battery that was fully charged and since the alternator isn't working, now the new battery is fully drained.

When you try to crank it, does it crank at all? or does it die completely?

It's the alternator, considering that when you jump it, it starts. You'll get some electricity due to the battery being new, and the alternator hasn't drained it COMPLETELY yet to have all electrics off.

Then it's definitely the alternator. Do you have any engine codes?

Alternator dude. There's nothing else that will give these symptoms with a new battery.

If engine code is present, it's most likely Cam Shaft Sensors. Since no engine light is on and battery is new, then it's alternator. No other causes.

@amaxxf09 Definitely your alternator. I experienced this same issue, I am a trained professional. LMFAO! Get a new one or it will kill your new battery too. Listen or else you're gonna kill your car! LOL
