OK, so likely not battery with two there. Just for you though, NEVER think that just because the battery is new and charges up that it is good, it SHOULD be, but I cannot tell you how many times I saw a week old or less brand new battery seem to charge up fine and hold the charge as well, but spit its' guts out instantly at putting a starter load on it, and why an actual loadtest itself becomes the only true test you have of a good battery. I've seen a 12.8 battery drop to 2 volts instantly as soon as activation heat makes a cell-to-cell connection open up. As soon as it cools off the 12.8 is back and it will check with a meter at that forever. It just won't work under a heavy load. Batteries can fail in so many different ways you can't keep up with them all.
It sounds like to me that car is riddled with possible electrical issues.
