Why are you disconnecting the battery with the engine running? Never mind, you've probably already figured this out by now, but there's a good chance your alternator is fried and your spark plugs are running on battery power. Get your alternator checked out. New ones aren't that expensive (approx. $50) and can be changed by anyone handy with tools.
