Hello,\015\012
\015\012If you replaced the battery and alternator and the car is still dying after running for a while then it sounds to me like there is a loose connection or a short. Make sure the battery clamps are tight and without corrosion. Next follow the positive cable from the battery and check all connections for tightness and corrosion. Do the same with the negative battery cable. Check all the braided straps connected to the frame of the car as well. Check them all from the starter to the alternator etc. You will want to tug on the wires where they connect too. They can corrode under the insulation where you can not see. When this happens they wire will snap right off when you tug on them. If they are good a tug will not harm it. If there is a short this would be something that you would need to diagnose. A bad starter can drain on your battery as well. \015\012
