NEED HELP ASAP

I was driving out of my neighborhood and my car stereo started turning on and off. And made a low rev noise over and over, also when that happened my rpm didnt work either. So I pull into the neigborhood next to mIne and turn my car off. And I tried to turn it back on and it seemed like the battery was dead although I literally just replaced it 4 days ago. So I suppose there's something wrong with the alternator as well? Can anyone help?

Bad alt and/or recheck your batter terminals to be sure they're tight

Re: NEED HELP ASAP

definitely your alternator. if your electrical systems are flickering and failing while driving than there's no question about it.

Re: NEED HELP ASAP

Maybe your terminals are loose considering you just replaced your battery. It could be your alternator though, it happened to me less than a month ago.
