Question about Cars & Trucks
If the new battery is good then you have a bad connection to the battery. use a rag to clean the connectors and batt terminals then put a thin smear of vaseline on the terminals before reconnecting. do not use copper paste.
if it starts and runs by jumping it, continues to run when jumper cables removed, and the battery light isn't on, on the dash then it can only be the battery connectors or battery condition that's at fault

You might want to have then check the alternator. Sometimes an alternator will test ok but once it has been running for a while, the dilinoids (not sure about the spelling), will basically cause a short circuit in the electrical system and the alternator is no longer charging the battery which drains the battery.

something is shorted out and should be getting hot as blue blazes..you must find the short...it will be something that is NOT FUSED ie starter or alt or a heavy wire or battery cable
