Exclamation 2005 PT CRUISER

Hey cruisers, I have a 2005 Cruiser, lost power, changed alternator, spark plugs,serpentine belt, battery...battery light comes back on after approximately 5 min in idle mood, even faster if I turn on air or radio! Anyone out there who can share Cruiser Knowledge. I really need Mrs Cruise back up and running...🙏

Welcome to the forum.

Is your engine light on and if so what are the engine trouble codes?

Check that alternator belt is tight and not slipping.
Be sure battery connections are clean and tight.
Inspect battery cables and be sure they aren't corroded.
Have battery checked - wouldn't be first time a new battery is bad.
You might have an electrical short somewhere.
