TOYOTA TACOMA STARTING ISSUE?

THIS TACOMA GOT TOWED IN FOR A NO START CONDITION. THE BATTERY WAS LOW ON CHARGE SO CUSTOMER INSTALLED A NEW BATTERY AND VEHICLE STARTED ONE TIME AND THEN BECAME A NO CRANK CONDITION. UPON INVESTIGATION I FOUND A BATTERY DRAW AT OVER 20 AMPS WITH THE VEHICLE OFF. THE ALTERNATOR WAS PULLING HIGH AMPERAGE FROM THE BATTERY AND CAUSING IT TO LOSE ITS CHARGE WITHIN MINUTES. BY UNHOOKING THE B+ TERMINAL FROM THE ALTERNATOR THE DRAW WENT AWAY WHICH INDICATES THE ALTERNATOR WAS INTERNALLY SHORTED CAUSING DRAW.
