I have changed the starter motor, alternator and the battery but the battery still dies and the car will not start unless the battery is recharged. There is no parasitic drain on the system and the belt is taut. The only thing that I have noticed is that one of the wires plugged into the alternator has disconnected and been repaired with a narrower wire.
