I have a 1988 Ford Bronco 2 that kept not
starting and  having a battery die so I

you have a parasitic draw somewhere. in that vintage of a vehicle it shouldn't be to hard to locate. check for rubbed wires and check your fuses. a blown fuse may lead you to the circuit that is causing the problem. if not, check out videos by and they both have great ones on how to locate a parasitic draw.
