Ok here goes....

Just replaced alternator and battery.
Used meter to see that the battery is putting out 12v.
When I jumpstart the car, it starts up.
Bbbbbuuuuttt...... without the jump, nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Corrosion on the positive pole was making it short... Kinda makes one wonder if the alternator was in fact bad.....

did you plug your ECU back in all the way ? (that huge connector just above the alternator)

did you plug the controller wire haness back in to the alternator?

also check your battery terminals.
