    the trunk light is out. could this affect the battery? it has to be a very slow electrical drain on battery. If car is cranked everyday. even in the coldest of weather, it will crank everyday thereafter and run. Therefore a machanic can't find problem in a shop. how would you check for the electrical failure in alternator?

Assuming that the trunk light is not staying on, I would think that the alternator would be the cause of the drain. When the internal electrical parts in the alternator fail, it can drain the battery.

    Using a testlamp, and the vehicle turned OFF. disconnect the positivebattery cable. COnnect each end of the testlamp between the POS battery end and the cable. If the light shines brighly, you have a draw, like a light on someplace. A barely lit lamp could be a bad diode in the alternator. The only way to check the alternator is from a professional alternator repair service.

Have a 1994 camry xle a 1997 lexus motor was put in it v6 3000 4 cam 24 the battery goes dead after about two days when the battery is charged it hard to start the starter clicks several times before

You either have a bad battery or something is draining it. A good way to test for this is to remove the pos battery cable from the battery. touch the cable to the battery post to complete the connection. If you hear something pop on, hum, buzz or click, it is staying on draining the battery. Your local auto zone, or advance auto ect will test your battery for free

New battery in Toyota Camry will not hold charge more than 24 hours

You need to do a parasitic load test.(this will require a DC ammeter).I prefer to test with a clamp-on type meter for a faster draining condition like this.Most people don't have this kind of test equipment,so the only other way is to just look for things staying on.A battery draining in 24 hrs is probably a 1-2 amp load.Try looking at the trunk light(gotta start somewhere).I have found glove box lights,vanity mirror lights,and underhood light staying on before.(I even remember a Chevy Blazer that had a 16 amp drain because the rear wiper motor wasn't parking correctly!)If there isn't anything obvious,then pull one fuse at a time until the battery drain stops(start with things you can drive the car without).

Sounds like a very bad battery. Possibly alternator not charging either.

A parts store (Advance or one like it) can give a check-up for battery and alternator too, if you can get there.
