my car wouldn’t start unless I jumped it, I finally got a new battery and brought it to a mechanic and had the alt. ,tested. They said it was good. Well my car won’t start every morning and I have to jump it. My battery is pretty warm after I do get it running. Any suggestions please help!

need more info...year and motor, mileage ...sounds like there could be a short somewhere or a parasitic drain on the battery. have you checked to verify all the lights are turned off?...is there any aftermarket parts ...check for codes as well

Yup, sounds like a short. That is the only way a battery heats up abnormally.
