hey yall well i just got a 89 4 runner like a month ago. and tuesday night i was driving it to a friends house and the raido and stuff started to cut on and off then it died in the middle of the road. the battery light had been on for a few days but i didnt think anything of it. so later that night after i called him to come jump me to get it to his house it starts right up yesterday we went to start work on it and it wouldnt start then 20 min later it started. took it to advance auto and the machine said bad battery so got a free battery cause it was under warranty then get back to the house and change it and it wont start again with a brand new battery. Im thinkin alternator but i just wanted to know what yall thought about it? thanks guys for all the help

I was having some similar intermittent electrical problems that were independent of the battery... found that the main positive electrical connection inside the fender fuse box had wiggled itself to the breaking point, and would connect or not connect solely based on gravity and agtiation. The moral of the story: check every single connection.
