    Give your battery a good charge. Start the car. While the car is running, remove the red ( Positive ) cable from the battery.  If the car continues to run then the generator / Altenator is working fine. Seek another reason such as a switch staying on or being stuck. A relay stuck, any other direct connection to the battery that may be draining it.  Can also be the interior lights.
