I have a 2000 cadillac catera. The battery died and was shot so I bought a new one and found out my alternator was going. I replaced my alterntor and everything seemed fine. The gauge was normal and better than before. We have driven the car alot since the replacement and all was well. the other day I drove to my dads place fourty miles away. The car sat and started well the whole time. I drove home parked the car and in the morning nothing. No instument lights no clicking no turn over... nothing at all. I tried charging the battery for a few hours but still nothing happened. HELP!!!

ok so i hooked up my tester to the barrery and it is definitely dead. What would cause it to die though? it has sat, ran, and everything well since the repairs. Why die now?
