Why after you replace a car battery would the car try to die when applying the brakes?

Perhaps the alternator is not keeping the battery charged properly

Check the output of the alternator with a voltmeter

a fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 volts without the engine running

With the engine running readings should go to approx. 13.8-14.2 volts
