    I have a 1997 chevy c1500 with a 5.7 L n a 105A alternator n since i got my ac fixed n i hav a sound system in my truck my battery has died on me twice n i know it not the battery that bad or the alternator. So i was wonder would upgrading the alternator to a bigger one will help me solve this problem. If so how hard would ot be to do this change n what would be one that i can put in n not mess anything up?

    Bring your Alternator to be tested same with you battery. Autozone tests them for free.

    Is the alternator charging the battery properly. Also its a good idea in this situation to check all your grounds and power cables. Was the truck dead after sitting over night or just after a few hours.

    i am not sure most likely charging poorly and all of my grounds are good and i was driving around with my system bumping and it was at night so i had the head lights on turned off the truck and went into a store for maybe like 45min and when i came back it wouldnt start all i heard was a click
