91 ef sedan still dead after new battery and alternator

This has been making me pull my hair out for the past month!!
One day i went to turn the car on and it was dead.
tested the battery it tested bad it was over 7 years old so it was time for a replacement. It worked for a couple more days and it died again. ofcourse me being a mechanic instead of a technician i jumped to conclusions and replaced the alternator. Went a couple more days with everything being badass and it died again one cold morning.
Anyone have the same problem?
really need this car for daily driving.

Sounds like you might have a parastic charge leaching power while the car is switched off.

Check all your lights are off when you switch the car off. Does your car have an aftermarket radio? Check that it switches off correctly.

Make sure your grounds are good.

Well who would of guessed what the problem was? It was the ground for the negative battery cable being so corroded.
You are the man sp33!
