A belt keeps shredding, and the battery won't stay charged.
Hi there. If a belt keeps shredding, there may be a problem with one of the engine’s pulley’s or a tensioner. This is probably the cause for the battery not charging, as the battery is charged by a belt driven alternator. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic inspect the vehicle’s pulleys to see if one of them may perhaps be seized or damaged.
