Aleissa. Thanks for contacting us today. When a new battery goes dead after replacement, it’s typically due to the alternator being damaged or one of the charging cables not working correctly. In regards to the security alarm, this might be a symptom of the worn out battery or a different electrical glitch. Instead of taking your car to a mechanic, why not have the mechanic come to you? You can set up a battery will not hold a charge inspection by clicking this link if you’d like.
