Electrical problem
1994 Mazda Protege 4 cyl Manual

I have changed the battery as well as the alternator and the battery still doesnt stay charged. It seemed to be happening mostly at night so I took out the fuses for the radio and clock and only drove during the day as to not use the headlights. That seemed to work fine for a couple of days but now the battery doesnt stay charged during the day either. I can get the car jumped but if I let it sit to charge the battery slowly dies, also if I rev to high rpms the battery light goes off? I have already spent a lot of money trying to figure this out and dont have much left, please help!

What do mean by "if I rev to high rpms the battery light goes off?" Are you saying that the battery light stays on all the time? That means your alternator is not charging up the battery. Take the car to an Autozone or CSK/O'Reilly, and ask them to test your electrical system. That will determine which part is faulty.
