    do you have a tereo or amp that is not being turned off when the key goes off
    you could also have a bad voltage regulator charging the battery when running but running the bat voltage backwards thru the diodes in the alt regulator to ground
    check after the car is cold and see if the alt is still warm,indicating a shorted voltage regulator/alternator
