Icon5 Wiring ? Battery ? massive DRAINING

Im a new member ! so i have 91 preludeSI Gen2, the battery drains out over night every time i charge it or get a new one, this started happening after my girlfriend drove my Prelude, it was her first time, so she killed it a couple of times and red lined it twice ... i think the wiring may have been shocked or something, i really have no clue, thnx for your time !

Re: Wiring ? Battery ? massive DRAINING

Maybe the alternator is not charging right, or it might have an internal parasitic drain. Other than that, redlining the engine should not really cause an electrical problem (unless the alternator was bad to begin with).

Here is the Honda manual pages:

I would be more worried about the engine damage that may have occurred on the 20-some year old motor.

First let me correct you:

1991 Si is a 3rd gen Prelude not a 2nd gen.

For testing for batter drain, view this video because it is universal for any car:

Now go do this first and then come back with results and then we will move on from there.
