Sounds Like You Have A Voltage Drain, That Is Something Is On Or Grounded In The Car. To Test This Buy A Test Light At Parts House. Rermove The Negetive Cable From Battery, Leaving The Positive Cable Attached To The Battery. Connect Test Light Between Negetive Cable And Negative Battery Terminal: If Light Comes On You Have Something On Or Grounded. Remove The Bulb From Hood Light First ( The On That Lights Up When You Open Engine Compartment--HOOD }. Turn Off Ignition When And If You Find The Problem The Light Will Go Out. This Is The Best Way To Find Your Problem. PLEASE NOTE ++++++++ If The Light Don`t Come On. Your Battery Is Probably Bad. In Fact Go Have The Battery Tested First !!!! Then Replace If It Is Weak Or Bad. If That Don`t Work Try The Things Above. HOPE THIS ISN`T TOO MANY THINGS. GOOD LUCK --Try look for a fuse. There should be a Fuse that connects the Battery to Alternator. It by be burn out
