Default Electrical Issues
I have a 1991 RX-7, that has some electrical problems. It will drain the battery in 3 days. I had someone look at it, and he seemed to find the problem, and all was ok for the summer 2 years ago. I then had them do a little more work on the car, and his monkey of a mechanic screwed something up to where it now drains the battery again.

I am in the New England area (Southern NH) and would love some recommendations on someone who is a very knowledgable RX-7 mechanic. I would be interested in someone in the NH, MA, ME, VT or CT areas.

Any help would be appreciated.

Perhaps the main problem lies in the generator since the car is not new. When the ignition is turned on, the main load goes to the battery, and then the car should run on a generator, but in your case, only the battery provides power to the car, so its charge is only enough for a few days. If you do not want to buy a new battery every week, it is best to contact a specialist as soon as possible to resolve this problem. As far as I know, Bates Electric Charlotte is one of the best specialists in this field. Their technicians can provide any help when the problem is with electricity.
