You can have your alternator and battery tested at pretty much any auto parts store.

I'd retrace your steps on the wiring and make sure that nothing is shorting to ground somewhere in the system.

ask your alt if it likes other alts?[sm=joke.gif]

on a serious note though, same thing happened to me a few weeks ago after the alarm was installed, every time i tried to start the car i needed a jump, i got a red top and all is well again.

boost the car, and check the voltage at the battery with a dmm. See if it's charging.

When I bought my optima yellow top I asked the techs at optima which battery I should use red or yellow and explained what kind of power my stereo has they said the yellow top was for me that was 8 years ago it still works just fine.
