Why does 1994 Ford Taurus loses connection when trying to start and the battery and starter has been replaced?

This can be due to loose or corroded cables and or connections , and did the car start even at least once after the battery and starter was replaced? If it did you probably need a new alternator or if your handy enough you have the choice of rebuilding the alternator. Many stores offer free alternator testing , I my self have a 96 Taurus and i have had many problems over the years and now I'm at the point where my alternator is bad and i will soon be rebuilding it. If it is none of these issues then there is some thing more serious wrong in which case it needs to go to a mechanic who can determine and fix the issue.
