I actually just fixed a probably just like this on my 88' sunbird, it ended up being a link fuse that comes off the starter solenoid (a 14 gauge one), it was broke (ie burnt up like a normal fuse would be when you, o' say hook the battery up wrong). After tearing the whole intake system apart and replacing that wire it worked great, just wish I would have found it before buying two batterys and three alternators. But basically just check your link fuses they should be close to the solenoid.

What is wrong with the battery if it wont stay charged with a new alternator on a Chrysler 5Th avenue?

Your alternator is probably rebuilt and not really new. I have had this problem several times and I have bought a new battery and alternator. The alternator keeps your battery charged and powers your electrical system, so even when driving you can lose all power in the car from the alternator draining your battery. Take the battery and alternator to an auto store and they will test both for free. Ask them about the difference in a rebuilt alternator and a brand new one. This is a very common problem.
