Question Electrical troubles..

The battery and alternator are new, but it'll start, and if i come back 20 mins later.. it's dead, but the battery is still holding a good charge. So i'm guessing it's a short somewhere? I dont have anything else tapped into it, no alarm, no subs or speakers. Anyone got some ideas?

Check battery cables and terminals. Most the time that is your problem

Re: Electrical troubles..

dirty cables connections can cause that sometimes.
