eletrical problem

I just bought a new battery and a new alternator, and went to go start my car and the battery died immediately. does that mean i have a short in the system or is there a more serious problem?

I assume you have a Escort ... but year, model, engine size would help allot.

Re: eletrical problem

Did you check all your connections to make sure they are clean/tight/ at the battery post terminals, ground and at the starter? Also check the condition of the cables themselves. If I cable has broken or torn insulation there could be corrosion inside the cable itself, or the wire inside the cable could be broken.

They stated in another post a 88 Escort GT. I assume this is the same vehicle they are talking about.
