So I haven't been able to drive my car for a week, and the wife says my battery is dead.... its a 2011 with about 3k miles, TBE, and Cobb stage 2. All the lights have been off, and she hasn't touched it. The only thing I can think of is maybe the parking brake was draining the power from somewhere, and the only thing connected on the inside is the AP cable. Any help would be great. thanks.

the AP itself isn't connected, but the trunk light is the one I suspect. I guess she can get a charger or jump the car and let it run for a few hours.

Maybe the parking lamp switch was turned on accidentally?

IDK, she says all the switches were off.. Odd that a brand new battery would lose charge after just a week.

We can all speculate but the only way to verify is going to be on your end. Load test the battery (cars/parts have warrenties for a reason) and get a multimeter and test the car system. Could easily be that the alternator is defective as well.
