A short is possible but although it may be a new battery there may be the possibility your battery may be defective did this also happen to your prior battery if it did then i would check for a current draw . possible stuck relay or a grounded wire somewhere.check the battery terminals for a good connection is the alternator charging the battery when the engine is running

You need to place a test light in between the negative cable and the battery negative post.The test light is cheap,purchase one and remove the negative battery cable from the battery,place the clip of the test light to the negative post on the battery(I know it is a side post),You may need a helper.Take the tip of the test light to the negative battery cable end.With the key out of ignition,and the doors closed,make sure there are no hood light,take it out if needed.If the test light comes on,there is a draw on the system,uplug the alternator plug first to see if the light goes off,if so,replace the alternator,if not,open the door,and remove the dome light fuse,then start removing fuses one at a time,and putting them back after you remove them and watch the test light,when it goes out ,that is the circuit that is the problem,so,trace the fuse to what it goes to,,also,keep in mind,clocks are bad to do this,and clocks in the radio.
