it might help to set up a voltmeter to your battery and watch the decay as you power up / turn on accessories etc... to help diagnose. Not that voltage is the answer, but it is a start. Make sure the regulator and capacitor on the back of the alt are in good shape.

ps I recently found a bolt.. yes an F*&%'n bolt in my alternator that was draining my battery over the course of a few days.

and.. if a battery is not properly charged, the charging system of the car will never bring it up to snuff.
