What I started noticing is that sometimes the battery disconnects from the car completely - ... Once it happened when I was driving on the highway!
Therefore, I have 2 possible problems - either the battery is faulty, or the alternator is failing?
Does anybody have any ideas or suggestions on what to do next?
Wow, that gets irritating real quick, and quite dangerous too!
Did the problems start immediately after the battery replacement? If so, that's where I'd start. I am sure walmart will claim they have to test it first, etc but explain the safety concern.
After that, or simultaneously, check the alternator. With the car running, a good alternator will keep it running regardless of the state of the battery*.
You didn't happen to make any foul connections during the removal or replacement of the battery, something to cause a spark, did you?
