Charge the battery up and ck it for a draw, after charged remove the neg battery cable and hook up an amp meter, between the battery and the cable, let it sit there for about 10 to 15 min, then look at it, should be below.30 of an amp, anything higher will run down the battery, if its higher you will have to start pulling fuses til it goes away and then find a wiring scematic of that fuse
