Default Battery keeps dying

Hi all
I bought a 3008 Allure 66 plate diesel 1.6 automatic.
When I first bought it I had a message on the dashboard, to top up adblue.
I topped up the adblue, but I received another message, engine fault, then the battery kept dying, I replaced the battery, but no luck, I bought a new alternator, but no luck, then the dashboard kept turning off (dying) by itself I took it to a Peugeot specialist, but the computer did not read anything and it refused to read anything from the car, the car computer refused to communicate with the specialist computer.
When I recharge the battery the car starts perfectly drives perfectly, but after a while the battery dies and I start getting the engine fault error, then the dashboard switches off. As soon as I switch of the car I wouldn't be able to start it again unless I recharge the battery.
Any advice, your help is highly appreciated
Thanks in advance.

The most likely problem is the alternator not charging the battery. Measure the voltage across the battery terminals with the engine running. You are looking for 13.8 to 14.2 volts.

The next most likely is a large current drain. Measure this with the engine stopped, using a clamp ammeter around one of the battery cables.

Thank you for your reply I really appreciate it, however I bought a brand new alternator, and a new battery, but still no luck. The computer is unable to read anything, once we blug it in for a diagnostic test,the computer is unable to connect or read anything.

1 Stop throwing parts at it it rarely works

2 computers DONT TELL YOU WHATS WRONG they are a tool to HELP diagnose the problem

3 A lot of diagnostic tools cannot connect to newer peugeots this is not the fault of the car or the computer simply a change to the way things are done you need to try a different computer and before you say it snap on is NOT THE BEST !!!

The fact that an item is new does not guarantee that it is defect free. Measure the volts and the amps if you want to know what is happening..

I had the battery die on my 3008, called the AA out to replace it, the mechanic told me the computer needs to be reset after a new battery is fitted even though I had no warning lights or codes stored.

That car wasn't fitted with stop/start and didn't have the agm battery.

If your car has stop/start you need the correct battery, the agm uses a different charging system pulse charging I think its called.

I know the wrong battery on a stop/start will cause some systems to stop working correctly, maybe the dash and diagnostic problem your having.

Not sure if it has any bearing in your case but might be worth looking into.
