Thanks for the advice guys, will get my wife to help me, i just need to go to the parts store and buy a tester. I need to find this problem fast, jumping every few days and trying to get the alarm system to shut off so i can jump is becoming a pain in the ass. I have to go out eveyr morning before the wife leaves to make sure i have battery power.

Ok fun night. I guess this is worse than i thought. Drove home from costco getting gas, and got on her a lil and BOOM, no power. Tried jumping and nothing, cables almost caught on fire and i burnt my finger pretty good.

Wife finally shows with my extra battery, put terminals on and they start smoking, i get the alarm shut off and smoking stops. Start her and rev a lil BOOM!. so i repeated process and got her started and home, had to keep her under 3k with hazards on. Got home, shut off, turned on again fine, so i rev it over 3k again and BOOM, no power at all, what so ever. Any ideas?

Im wondering if the alternator is over charging was what i was thinking, but its just weird it wasnt doing it like this the other day. Just started tonight. Going to get another fusible link, and then test the voltage i guess.

Just remember if you blow fuses, you have a current draw issue. High voltage doesn't blow fuses, high ampreage does.

you gettin 1.21 jiggawatts at the flux capacitor?

Problem is nothings blown, but the battery. When it revs to high it seems like its instant draining the battery, which i dont understand, 2 batteries it did this to. I pulled in after finally getting it home, shut her off with lights on, and she started right up, then reved her and BOOM dead no power what so ever.

I have that evo style cf hood on it, imn wondering if water ran down and drenched the alternator last night? Im going to put my shitty different colored hood back on, and re do the battery terminals again, and replace the f-link and see if that does anything.

Have you put a multimeter on the battery yet? See what it reads when you rev it?
