dead or weak cell in your battery. is the output of the alt. more than 13 volts? need more info on how long it takes between no starts.

3 alternators and your still having the same issue, have you had the battery tested yet? if you havent do that first, then check out your grounds and make sure your wiring is all tight.

are these altornators in-ternal or ex-ternal regulators? cant remember so if its not holding a charge yes check your conections all your grounds fuses etc. and maby your just getting luck of the draw at your parts store? also when the cars on you should see an out put of the altornator at a little above 14v if its not that then you need to charge your battery and get your alt tested.....thats all i got had this problem at my work!
