Still be sure the battery is getting voltage from the alternator. Just put a meter across the battery when the engine is running. You should see ~14V putting a charge back into the battery from the startup. With a bad alternator, the first battery would have given out and if the previous owner was using the emergency switch all the time, the start battery would have went very dead and may now test bad. You could be starting off the new batteries initial charge and have this problem again after several starts.
