I just had a new battery installed a week ago. @ Days after I got home my battery was dead. The altenator is fine. I put the battery on a 120 min. Charge and it turned over 3x but wouldn't start then died. I repeated charge and then put the booster on, turns over but won't start. In between these sessions of once or twice a day the new battery (top of the line) goes completely dead. I even blew drie and put a heater on the engine compartment with nothing. I took a piece of copper wire and wrapped it around the lead on the ignition coil and put it to metal with no spark. Did I do that correct and would that solve all the issues? Thanks
