a battery even if fully charged if it wont hold a charge / LOAD need to be replaced...if the battery load tests ok.then find whats drawing/sucking the power..any aftermarket parts?? remove 1 fuse at a time after you conneck a volt meter as shown .if its showing anything between 1-12 volts...remove one fuse at a time and see if the meter/needle..goes back to 0....of anything lower than waht you had...even if the dray shows 12 volts at the start and you pull a fuse and it now shows 10 volts ..thats part of the problem ..could have more than one...if you pull a fuse and it zeros out than thats the whole problem,that circuit..
