    take it to autozone. :p
    mooH, but seriously, when i worked at autozone, my car did the same thing, and i found out i had a positive wire (for remote for my amp) grounding out on the car's frame under the door kick panel thing.
    My battery would die in like 15 minutes if i left my car in the 'on' position.
    so, maybe look for a positive wire touching somewhere to ground.
    Mine was NOT sparking tho, it was a small wire too.
    Also, my battery was FULL of corrosion because of the grounding out.
    Maybe somethin to look for?
