Question: I just replaced my battery 2 weeks ago. Today the car began to stutter and lights dimming. It would not restart, dead battery. I replaced the alternator, jumped it and it ran for about 3 minutes at a 3000 rmp before the ABS and Trac Cont lights came on, lights began to flicker, 1 minute later the battery light came on and it started to stutter again. I shut it off and now the battery is dead again.....?????? what now?

This is where you learn the wonders of troubleshooting. Why wouldn't you want to buy a volt meter for $5 and do some troubleshooting, instead of buying a new battery and a new alternator? Why does figuring out what's wrong have to be the last activity? Half of life's problems require a volt meter to solve. So buy yourself one. Sounds like you might want to buy a battery charger too.

Sounds more like a transfer case issue, especially the whining and the loss of reverse (as though the T-case went into Neutral). If it is an electronic (push button) 4WD, it is possible the solenoid that activates the transfer case ranges isn't operating in its full range of motion. The high shifting may be due to the front axle still being engaged. Check the front drive shaft to see if you can rotate it by hand. If the transfer case was put into 2WD, the front axle should have disengaged and you should be able to rotate the driveshaft. If not, the transfer case may still be in 4WD or the front axle hasn't disengaged.

Since you eliminated the battery and alternator, you should have the pcm (powertrain control module) tested. The pcm regulates alternator output. Could be a internal problem or the wiring between it and the alternator.

You need new battery cables. Check the cables where they hook onto the battery you will find that corrosion under the insulation has eaten the wiring in two.

check your grounds battery to engine, battery to frame ,or try a jumper cable from the ground on the battery to the engine never heard of a battery dyin that quik
