Engine Performance problem
1995 Ford Escort

I have a 95 Ford escort which hasn't been driven or cranked in approximately 6 months. The alternator was replaced in 07. I recently recharged the battery and the engine starts. But when I cut off engine and attempt to restart engine, it will not restart (without another charge). Neither lights or radio come on during attempt to restart.

So does this sound like a battery or alternator issue?

Could be either one. Need to have charging system tested. Most part stores will test your alternator and battery on or off of vehicle, free of charge.
