Can some1 shed any light on my problem??

My car had to have a new alternator because it was putting out 18V!!! this also meant that it would probably damage the battery. so does this sound like batt or starter motor....

i have to bump car to start it... and soon as i turn it off and turn it back on it wont start again.. and has to be bumped!!!!

any ideas?

cheers

does the starter motor make any attempt to turn over, will it start with jump leads,
if it starts with jump leads then its your battery,
the easiest way is to borrow a battery from another car and see if it starts, i expect it is the battery rather than the starter
