    I assume you replaced the battery because it ran down, and now the new battery has done the same. If that is the case, your alternator has probably gone bad, have it tested at a parts store, they can tell you what has happened.

    also new batteries are sometimes dead right off the shelf. It's very hard work for an alternator to charge up a completely dead battery and the charge is rather superficial unless you drive for a long long time.

    so yeah test your alternator output.
