Sounds like something is shorting out. Has there been anything electrical changed recently? A guy at work was replacing his power antenna...he hooked it up wrong and smoked the battery.

i would start by inspecting/cleaning/buying new cables and getting the battery bench tested. that will tell you almost everything you need to know. it sounds like a bad connection/bad terminal
