battery keeps draining??


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 S Targa; Year: 1976; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 180000;

Battery wont hold a charge - All lights work, door buzzer etc, - just wont start. Acts as if battery is dead. Will happen after about 2 to 3 days after charging to full on battery charger. Have removed and tested alternator and starter and both are ok. Have replaced alternator warning lamp bulb, and put in brand new battery. I was doing some detailing on my engine compartment and somehow got a spark off of my engine fuse block. Problem seemed to start after that, but not for sure. Not sure what else to check. Have put voltmeter on battery and seems to only charge to about 11.5amps no matter what the RPM's. Also, alternator lamp constantly glows very dimly and egr light does the same. At wits end, so any help would be appreciated.Thanks,Don Jameson
