2009 Borrego v6 in st Louis while my wife was driving she said the battery light came on than all the other lights came on lost power and the suv died. I jumptarted her and made it about 3 miles and did it again. replaced the battery and drove3-4 miles to home when she pulled into drive way the battery light came on again. turned suv off and tried to start it back up just clicked. the person at the battery place checked the alternator and said it was good. do I need to reset anything? just at a loss why the new battery did this

remove battery terminals and clean also chassis end of earth wire. Clean shiny metal No grease when all ok. then you can put grease over to protect.
When you get car running voltage across terminals should be 13.9 if only 12.3/6 the Alternator or wiring /connection.
If battery and alternator good why did they replace battery.
Volt meters are cheap check yourself if battery and alternator are good and all connections may be relay.
