You probably have a parasitic battery drain. Look it up on the web or Youtube.

Thanks...do you know if 'Parasitic Battery Drain' can it be resolved/repaired?

First you find what is draining the battery and then you fix it. Your description of the problem is vague but perhaps the problem is a bad ignition switch.

We have no idea what can completely collapse a battery in a mater of minutes..i had a brand new alternator placed and still it's drained go figure...

A major drain would be required to kill a battery in minutes which would probably be easy to find. If you are not good with electrical stuff have a pro take a look.

Thanks I'll take it to a dealer.

An independent shop will save you a lot of money but if you are loaded take it to the dealer.

It is your choice. Good luck. Dealers will charge you something like $120 a hour or more.
