Default Re: battery issue

Apparently you either have a short somewhere or maybe bad cables (corrosion). Sounds like you just threw parts (battery/alternator) at the problem without actually knowing what the problem is except that it wouldn't start. If you would have taken the car to one of the auto stores in your neighborhood, they could have checked your battery and charging system and told you if you needed to change those parts. You could also have a drain on the battery when it sits so it wears down the battery. Do you have a meter that you can test the voltage that you have when it's running, when it's turned off and when you try to start it again?

Looking at your first 2 posts, you were having timing issues. Did you get that straightened out? Could it be that you have the timing 190 degrees off the correct setting, or maybe even a few degrees that would stop the car from starting?
