Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
The issue that you are describing is consistent with a ground/earth connection or a faulty ignition switch. What I would suggest as a first step is to inspect the connections at the battery,battery leading to the alternator,and the battery leading to the starter. If all connections check out and the connections are tight and not corroded or frayed then the ignition switch is keeping power supplied when it should not and draining the battery.
