Complaint - Electrical System

THIS CAR HAS HAD 3 NEW BATTERIES AND IT HAS JUST OVER 5,000 MILES. TODAY AAA JUMPED THE CAR AND I DROVE FOR OVER AN HOUR TO CHARGE UP THE BATTERY, THEN I WENT GROCERY SHOPPING, CAME OUT AND THE CAR WOULDN'T START. CALLED AAA THEY CAME OUT AND STARTED MY CAR AND CAME HOME. GOT UP TO TAKE IT INTO THE DEALERSHIP AND IT WON'T START. THE TEST HE RAN ON THE BATTERY I WAS TOLD THE BATTERY IS OK, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG IN THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. THE ELECTRICAL MONITOR ON THE DASHBOARD DOES NOT SHOW ME HOW MANY MILES PER HOUR I HAVE BEEN DRIVING. THE BLUE LINE GO UP MAKING ME THINK THE BATTERY IS CHARGED, BUT WHEN I STOP I CANNOT RESTART THE CAR. I CANNOT AFFORD TO KEEP TAKING MY CAR INTO TOYOTA TO GET IT FIXED. THE DEALERSHIP IS TOYOTA TEMECULA VALLEY ON YNEZ RD, ALSO CALLED TOYOTA4U.COM. MAYBE IT IS THE POWER BUTTON, NOT CONNECTING TO THE ELECTRICAL. LAST TIME THE SERVICE REP YELLED AT ME THAT IT WAS MY FAULT FOR NOT TAKE THE CAR OUT EVERY DAY AND DRIVING IT ON THE FREEWAY, AND I WAS SO EMBARRASSED I SAID JUST PUT ANOTHER BATTERY IN IT. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD CADILLAC BEFORE THIS, BUT I FELT TOYOTA WAS A RELIABLE CAR, AND MY NEIGHBOR LIKE THEM.
