I hate to state the obvious but you have a direct short or loose wire somewhere. My first step would be to make sure the connections on the battery are clean and tight. I have also had problems with the body ground wires. These could be corroded, loose or broken. Sad to say it could be anything from a loose/broken wire to a blown fuse when dealing with electrical issues. Good luck check starter cylinoid on inside fender wall.

What could be wrong if the battery light stays on after installing a new battery and alternator in a 1994 Nissan Sentra XE?

In the 1988 Nissan the alternator, instrument panel, and backup lights shared a fuse. Before changing a fuse see if the backup lights work (have someone watch when you are in reverse). If the neutral start/backup light switch is broken internally, it can be blowing the fuse when you put the car in reverse.
