so my car has been draining my battery, it was kinda old so i figured it just died. i went and bought a new batt, and installed it i have a volt meter in my car and it went from 12v to 0 in about 45 sec. and i couldnt start the car. i tried jumping it and with the cables on my car still shows no power as if the battery wasnt there and there was no jumper cables on. WTF? anyone else run into this?? btw 2001 Grand am gt

ok i fixed it... it was the Neg wire that goes to the battery had acid or w/e and couldnt get a connection. i cleaned it and everything fired up... but thatnks for the idea of the fuses it made me think to check the wires
