Does the security light stay on solid when it runs for a bit?Also, how long will it actually stay running?
Try unplugging the mass air flow sensor. If the car will start and idle on it's own, then this should indicate that it's the problem.
If not, please let me know.
No problem and have a nice night.
Well a parasitic drain is pretty impossible to determine here on the forum as to where it is.
Check and make sure there isn't a trunk light and or engine compartment light. If there is, take the bulbs out. Also, make sure the battery itself is good. It might not be able to hold a charge.
