    If you put it in because the old one died your actual problem is the alternator. The car needs electrical power to work. If the alternator is working, it gets it from there, if not, it uses the battery. The alternator charges the battery. No alternator, no charge, when battery discharges and nothing to recharge it you have a dead car. Case closed.
