Dashboard lights up then wont start after stopping

I am having a problem with my vehicle....about a week ago I was driving along and all of the lights came on the panel, the first one being the battery light, then ABS, then every other one...I had about a mile to drive home and I made it...When I got home, almost all power was gone, not even enough to blow the horn...I turned the vehicle off and it wouldn't restart...So I removed the battery, took it to AutoZone , and they told me it was down to 2 %..So they recharged it and I put it back in...Drove it right back to AutoZone and they told me that it was the Alternator...So, I changed the Alternator and ultimately got a brand new battery...Drove it yesterday no problem...Drove it to work today, and same lights came on, and started losing power again, with all lights on...Any ideas ??

Probably a lose wire somewhere. Check all your connections to your alternator and battery again.
