Possibly a bad alternator. Make sure EVERYTHING is turned off(dome light
too), remove the positive battery cable and look closely for some light
sparking when you touch the end to the terminal. If there is, disconnect the
alternator connections, and try the end to the terminal again. If it doesn't
spark, replace the alternator...if it does spark, its a drain elsewhere.
Also, please don't type in all capital letters...thanx.
