Okay so this time I didnt move the steering wheel or anything stupid like that. I had a great time on New Years Eve and on the way home I noticed nothing terribly wrong with my car except the noise it has always made. The next day when I had to go to work the car would not start at all. It made a lot of fast clicking noises but wouldnt start. I figured it might be the battery was dead so I bought a new one. The car started but I checked the charge on the battery and it read 12.13 so I knew it wasnt getting a charge. I then bought a new alternator and installed that. To no avail my car is still not charging. I dont know what is wrong. I have checked my connections and they seems to be perfectly fine connection wise. I dont know what is wrong and I dont want to take it to a shop and have them tell me I did something stupid and nothing was wrong to begin with for the alternator or battery. I also broke the tensioner bolt on the braket for the alternator (flipped it around and broke the whole thing when I was tightening it :p) I must get that fixed first but I am wanting input on what might be my problem. Once I get the bolt I will tighten it down and check the current coming from the alternator and see if the alternator I received is faulty or not. I dont belive it is because its brand new but you never know...please any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Nobody has any suggestions? Please guys, I am open to anything that it might be. I dont want to have to pay for the mechanic to find something stupid and cost me way too much money.

If the tensioner bolt is broken is it possible that the belt is slipping?
