    In response to 83Malibu E.

1. The alternator is defective.
2. The alternator is wired incorrectly.
3. There is something else wrong with the electrical system that you neglected to mention.

Just out of curiosity, was the battery drain the reason you replaced the alternator in the first place, or was the battery staying charged before you replaced the alternator?

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
