Are you familiar on how to perform a current draw, by using a 12 volt test light? This will help isolate what circuit in your electrical is causing the draw, provided battery good, and alternator has been confirmed good. Simple to do, only takes your time, and a 12 volt test light, or any 12 volt bulb and socket you may have in the garage. Get back to me, for instructions if your not familiar with procedure.
One thing i will ask is, about the stereo, is it factory, or has someone changed it to aftermarket? That is a good place to start looking if it's not a factory stereo system. 12 volt plug in spots in interior are another, such as sockets for cell phone adapters to plug in etc.

The power loss light goes on as a result of the alternator being bad.
Are you getting 'lifetime' guaranteed rebuilt alternators to replace the old ones?
If not, then the quality of the parts may not be good enough to run in your application.

Are the connections clean and shiny when removed?

Power issues... Total power loss only when turning key to "on".


Sounds like poor battery circuit connection breaking down under load. Make sure battery is charged and battery connections are clean and tight. Otherwise, the circuits will have to be traced further back.
