not sure what the issue is as a motor, unless you are running all your accesories should run off the battery for abit.
quick test. put a completely charged battery in the vehicle. start it up.... unhook the battery.... if it dies.... alternator.... if it keeps running battery.

Battery by itself with no cable attach should read 12.4V for low and 13.6V for fully charged.
With both terminal connected a health charging system should read 13.6 to 13.8V
Amp gauge should read positive when chagring and when discharging it should be on the left (negitive side)
Key has to be out of the ign.
Charge battery to the max with terminals off the car.
Test voltage and make sure it's between 12.8 to 13.6V
Check the battery CCA and compare it with a battery load tester.
CCA that read 60% below the sticker is a BAD battery.
Cannect the + terminal.
Carefully touch the negitive terminal to the neg. battery post.
Make sure all doors and light are off
You should get a little spark.
A large spare is equal to a large load.
An amp meter will give you a better idea what the drain is.
A short is hard to find and it will take time.
Work on one fuse at a time until you find the load.
