A short kills my Battery right after start up. it will only start with a jump help!

So i just6 bought a 92 xj beautiful rig but the damn thing wount stay charged. It has to a Short in the line somewhere. I removed all the fuses i could to see if that was the problem and got no where. So i was thinking about just installing a kill switch. it is a rig that isnt going to be a daily driver so what the hell. my question is if i have the switch on and start my jeep then thurn it of it will still run and fire up next time i turn the kill switch back on right? i dont know too much about this help me if you have any ideas. Thanks
