    If what you're saying is this: "Battery dead in the morning, jump starts okay, runs all day, then next dead again...."

    if that's what is happening, it's not your alternator. Most likely culprits are either a) the battery, or b) a parasitic drain on the battery that sucks out its charge that accumulated during the day.

    So you have to have the battery "loaded tested" (which can only be done on a battery that has been properly charged in the first place) and if that checks out okay, then you have to diagnose for a "parasitic drain", which can be tested in the manner described below:
