Go to auto zone and have them check your charging system to see if the alternator is charging properly.

Check the battery.
Check the alt.
Check the ground cable and ground straps.
Check to see the sunvisor light to see if it stays on.
Check to see if any lights stay on.


I hate shorts if that is what it is.

Use a multimeter. Remove the ground clamp and put the meter on its 10 amp range between the clamp and the battery post. Any reading over 0.1 amps indicates a problem, something drawing power in your car. You can narrow this down by removing a fuse at a time from the fusebox until the current draw disappears.

I think it has to be the charging system.

I don't know what year Mustang he has but if it is a newer one it shuts everything on the car off after you take the key out after about 15 minutes.
The OP really needs to do what Semerollin says:

Taking out fuses is not going to repair a bad alternator.

Battery chargers are not to expensive

Charge the battery and go back to get the charging system checked out.

The new battery you bought could be bad from the start from sitting in the store way to long.
Just don't start tearing your car apart before having these checked out.

Wow,

I'm sure happy you found out what it was before yanking fuses and fooling around with wiring and stuff.
