the car battery is allways used only to start the car. when the engine is running the battery is disconnected and the ALTERNATOR kicks in to generate power. most of the time , when the battery drains out while running the engine it means that the alternator is faulty.if that is the case you would have a red battery icon on the dash display on all the time,after you start the engine. check the alternator connection leads
