Hi DD, How long since you last used her.?.. Sure lights/interior light not left on.
Recharge battery & replace, connecting Pos cable only. Drivers door closed, Using meter (digital preferably) selected to 10 amps, connect one meter lead to neg terminal & other lead to Neg battery cable & read meter, if no reading, select next amp selection probably 2 amps & check for a reading, if still no reading select 200 Ma & check for reading.
Once you get a reading, remove fuses until reading reduces.That the circuit that is causing drain prob.
If every thing appears fine, reconnect battery Neg cable as normal & check battery volts are 14.5 with engine running to prove alternator O.K. or Perhaps new battery has failed anyway.
Easier to do than explain.
Hoggy. :D
