Default My car won't turn on?

Hi everyone,
I have been seaching for a couple days now and no luck. I can't seem to find anyone with this problem. The other day i went out to my car, turned it on and the charge light was on. I had just replaced my battery a couple months back so I figured that my alternator might be goin out. I drove a few miles to the store while the charge light remained on and the car had no problems. I was inside for maybe 20 min. when I came out and the car still started right up. I drove it home still with no problems and went out again later that night (maybe 2-3 hours later) and the car started up fine but the charge light was still on. I drove it for a bit with no problems, parked it over night and in the morning the car did not turn on. No dash lights/radio, the head lights would still turn on but no blinkers/brake lights. I removed the alternator and the battery and tested both. The alternator tested good and the battery tested low charge so I replaced it. I also checked fuses but still have the same problem... Any ideas??
