Hi..

 

Hopefully I can help..

 

If the battery always losses charge on the car when running - then you may well likely have fault with the charging system in regards XXXXX XXXXX alternator not charging whilst the engine in use - if that's the case then the car will just run on battery power alone until eventually it cuts out and you cant restart without a jump start etc..so a check of that the alternators connections aswell output voltage should be around 14.5v - aswell as the belt would be one area to check..so assuming you haven't done that already,as you don't mention that - then that would be next areas to check..I do hope this helps
