I'd wonder if, although you've charged the battery, if the battery is HOLDING any charge.

Unless it has been changed recently looks like new battery time.

You need to get the alternator/charging system checked too.

No i havnt.alternator is charging battery.but i think when my car is idle its discharging it somehow.suggested diode problem.is it fuel pump situated above alternator.somethin is engaging in that area when battery is reconnected.im gonna disconnect and reconnect some plugs which has been suggested on here will let you know

This year Fiesta is on the break point between early model (small rear lights)and later ,square shape,where the lights run right up the rear wings.Which model do you have?.The fuel pump is in the tank(petrol engine)If it's a diesel,then the pump is near the alternator.
