The car keeps dying like if the battery was dead
My car has an automatic transmission.
You should start with a battery load test to make sure it is fully charged and then test the charging system to see if the system is charging correctly. The alternator charging rate is controlled by the computer and the system would need to be scanned and the data should be checked for proper charging rates. There may be an issue with the main fuse/relay module that needs checked for connections issues.
