I was driving my car when I noticed that the speedometer and the rest of the gauges were fluctuating and then stop working all together. Soon after the car began to lag so I pulled over to check and when I was pulling up to the curb it died. I tried starting it but didn't start it wouldn't even crank the only sound the car made was a single click when I checked the engine I noticed the wire that connects to the alternator was burned as if damaged by a high voltage spark. Before this I changed the distributor cap, ignition wires, timing belt, and bought a new alternator. There is no check engine light or anything. I also noticed that my battery was drained so the next day I brought a new fully charged one but it still didn't start so I removed the alternator to get it tested it passed and the following day I returned installed the alternator and when I checkedthe battery it was drained again. I thimk it might be the starter but It shouldn't kill the car right. Buty question is what's wrong with my car? Hopefully that was enough detail.

Our how to repair site and look up battery parasitic draw. You can test where it is coming from. Your battery will need to be charged for this. If alternator wire is burnt it shold be checked to see if ithas worn through and hitting block.
