1996 Toyota RAV4 Question: total dead battery 6 days after: 1. renewing battery and 2. alternator 3. tests
Answer #1cardocIII from Gillespie's Auto Service, November 30, 2013, 17:30Master
There may be something randomly staying on a draining the battery. You'll need to get this back to the shop with a good description of the history of the battery dying, and inconclusive testing.

Thanks for the response.
I have done so.
The Toyota people have done the parasitic battery drain test 2 times.
I wonder what is next?
