I check it allready, there is everything allright with that...
But why when i give the car jump start and then take the cables off i runs only for 3-5 min. and then he just turns off... and battery is empty, that means the battery is not charging, and it is not an alternator because i just bough a new one not so long ago.
I remember that when i installed the alternator somethimes on my dashboard came a red battery light and it start to blink fopr a while and then it was allright....

Sounds like a bad ground, possibly.

I would redo all the electrical connections to both alternator and battery. There is a ground that attaches the battery to the transmission/engine block area as well.
