Is the AC working fine? sure seems its pulling a HUGE draw from the battery, If you don't turn the Ac ON is the system fine NO battery drain? That's the first check. NEXT, did the fans function correctly before the parts change? Why all the parts changing BCM, Battery, Alternator? any DTC codes before you started...
