The battery drains on it's own. We've had the battery tested with a full 12 volts measured. Is it the battery cable, or might there be another possible cause?

Has the battery been load tested? If so and it is ok, you will have to do a current draw test, by placing an Amp merer between battery Pos and the cable and checking the current draw with doors closed and key out, if above about.15 Amps, start pulling fuses to locate the suspect circuit, also unhook the alt as you may have a back feeding diode causing this problem.
