Why does my battery completely drain within one day?

Why does my battery completely drain within one day? I have a customized 1994 Chevy 350 hightop van that after I completely charge the battery within one day the battery is completely dead. The battery is only 2 years old.

How about, your engine actually does not charge the battery? i have had similar problem with my old car. what turns to be bad was i hope i say it right "alternator"(dynamo). it produces elektricity and stores unused in car battery. if it does not work, engine takes power for spark plugs from battery, so it dies quickly...

I had this problem. I discovered that the nut which clamped the wiring harness to the alternator was loose which caused intermittent connection from the alternator to the car's electrical system including the battery. Tightening the nut down fixed the problem.
