I have already checked the alternator, all illuminators, radio, a/c, lighters. All those things are good. The battery drains completly every night after driving the car. I have also already had the battery tested and it is good. What should be the next thing to check?

Hi there,

Do a current draw test, place an Amp meter between Battery Positive (+) and the cable, check current draw with key off and doors closed, if current draw is above about.15Amps, start pulling fuses one at a time to isolate the faulty circuit, also disconnect the alt as you may have a faulty diode which will cause a drain back, start here.
