Remove Your Negative Battery Cable. Make Sure Everything Is Off In The Car. Also Remove The Hood Light Bulb {the light that comes on when you raise the hood }. Connect A 12 Volt Meter, Or A Test Light ( Most Parts Houses Have These Around $8.00 } Between The Battery Negative Terminal And The Cable End. If The Light Comes On You Have Someting Using Voltage. You May Have A Grounded Wire Ect. You Will Have To Locate The Source Of This Until The Light Goes Out. When It Does, You Should Be OK. Note If Meter Don`t Show Voltage. Have Your Battery Tested Again.

Your battery does not supply electrical power to the vehicle it simply stores it. The alternator is what recharges (replenishes) the power used during cranking. You need to have your charging system checked to verify the alternator is working and at the same time you need to have the battery diagnosed as draining your battery completely repeatedly can cause premature failure.
