scan for codes and get the definitions , this is where a multi tester comes in , and for less than the price of an alternator , batt. should have 12.5 V at rest and when you get it started you should have 14+ at the batt. if the alt. is doing it's job ,

My multitester cost more than a custom alternator. You can get a free one at Harbor Freight.

A car that does not die while driving but will not start when shut off unless jumped has either a poor connection at either end of a battery cable (4 ends total) or needs a battery. Start by making sure battery terminals are clean and tight. If free battery testing is available do that next. Usually the battery is the problem.
